The whole terrifying incident was captured on camera and played in court on August 4!
It all started after passenger Lefenus Pickett criticized mom Penny Chapman for spanking her son. She allegedly retaliated by making a phone call to three male relatives who appeared armed with guns at the next stop and sprayed 13 bullets into the packed bus!
The passengers on the bus included an 80-year-old woman and a mother with her 4-year-old son, but amazingly no one was injured — thanks to quick-thinking driver Desmond Jones, an Army veteran, who sped the bus away, taking it straight to an area hospital.
The entire ordeal, which took place in June, was captured by multiple security cameras placed around the bus. The videos were played in court as Lefenus gave his testimony.
The alleged gunmen, Karon and Raheem Patterson, 19 and 21, and Angel Lecourt, 18, the paternal uncle of Penny’s son, were all in court on Thursday where they were ordered to be held for trial. Also, held without bail was Penny Chapman.
Assistant District Attorney Morgan Model Vedejs who is prosecuting the case told Philly.com, “It’s pretty amazing that no one was killed.”
We agree. What a terrifying ordeal!
