NC: Gunfight, Video Shows Passenger Pulled his Gun before Bus Driver did

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Surveillance video released Friday by the Charlotte Area Transit System shows the May 18 shooting aboard a CATS bus between the driver and a passenger.

The shooting occurred after the passenger, Omarri Tobias, asked the driver to make an unscheduled stop as the bus traveled through Charlotte's Steele Creek neighborhood. When the driver, identified as David Fullard, refused, Tobias can be heard taunting Fullard, who continues to drive.

In the video, Tobias can be seen pulling a gun. Moments later, Fullard pulls out his own gun. Gunfire is exchanged as the bus drives off the roadway.

Two other passengers on the bus flee to the rear of the bus. Neither of those individuals were physically harmed in the shooting.

I've had jobs where weapon carrying was forbidden and meant instant termination. I did not care and carried anyway and it was never a problem.

Now as a career Fireman/EMT it is impractical and not safe to carry on the job. But my firearm is locked in my truck at the firehouse a short distance away. Certainly closer and more available than the closest LEO. The first thing I do coming off shift is get strapped.
