Alabama school bus driver fatally shot; suspect grabs 6-year-old passenger and runs

Authorities in Alabama say a man boarded a school bus, shot the driver several times, then removed a 6-year-old passenger and ran.

The Dale County Sheriff tells WBMA-TV (http://bit.ly/WthpQh ) that the man shot the driver Tuesday after he refused to let the child off the bus. The bus driver later died of his wounds. His identity has not been released.

Authorities say the shooter took the child to an area behind a nearby church, and police were negotiating with him.

Police in Midland City were not immediately available to comment, and a call to the Dale City Sheriff's office was not answered Tuesday evening.
