MAN SHOOTS 2 ON BUS, THEN LEAPS TO HIS DEATH

A passenger fired several shots in a Greyhound bus Sunday, wounding two people, then jumped off the bus and was killed when he hit a guardrail.

The wounded passengers were not seriously hurt, said St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Capt. Audrey Thibodeaux.

She said other passengers told investigators that the man had been drinking alcohol on the bus from Houston to New Orleans.

The gunman was identified as Jose Roberto Moza, 46, of Pasco, Wash.

"He said someone was going through his bags and wanted the driver to stop," said passenger Jay Gladden, 30, of Columbus, Ga. "He reaches in his pants, pulls out a .357 and starts brandishing his gun."

The bus driver began slowing down and opened the door, Gladden said, and the gunman "fires off six shots, hits one guy in the hand and shoulder, runs out of ammo and jumps off the bus and hits the cement guardrail."
