Man allegedly threatens passengers on Greyhound bus from Milwaukee to Chicago

RACINE COUNTY, Wis. - The Racine County Sheriff arrested a man, who allegedly wanted to kill fellow passengers on a Greyhound Bus from Milwaukee to Chicago, Saturday night.

According to investigators, at least two passengers on the bus called 911 last night around 9:45 p.m. as it made its way through Milwaukee County, according to our sister station TMJ4.

"They indicated there was a person on the bus making threatening statements and, in fact, threatening to shoot and kill," the Sheriff said. 

Officials said there was an altercation with at least two people on the bus. They reported he was making reference to a gun, reaching towards his waistband, and behaving strangely by walking in and out of the washroom and down the bus's aisle. 

The 36 other people on the bus were all unharmed.  

The suspect is currently being held at the Lake County, Illinois, jail. 

He's facing charges of disorderly conduct and making terroristic threats, a felony, in Racine County.

The suspect could face additional charges when he arrives back in Racine County. 

So far, no weapon has been recovered on the bus.
