Unbelievable: Man Shoots Bus Passenger Over Flatulence

In a bizarre incident in Las Vegas, Nevada, a man allegedly opened fire on a fellow bus passenger, reportedly provoked by laughter over a flatulence incident. The suspect, identified as Dominic Johnson, was apprehended by the local police following the incident on May 3.

The incident occurred around 2:30 p.m. on a bus operated by the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada. Surveillance footage from the bus reportedly showed Johnson standing up and pulling out a handgun before firing four shots at a passenger seated at the back of the bus. Johnson then fled the scene, running through a nearby parking lot and into an apartment building.

The victim, who has not been named, sustained gunshot wounds to his hand, stomach, and leg, and was found in a pool of blood by responding officers. Despite the severity of his injuries, he was able to provide a statement to the police two days after the incident. He claimed that he had no prior interaction with Johnson and was perplexed as to why he was targeted.

According to court documents, the victim and his girlfriend had been laughing about a flatulence incident on the bus, which may have irritated Johnson. Surveillance footage confirmed that there was no direct interaction between the two men prior to the shooting.

The Las Vegas Metro Police Department used descriptions from eyewitnesses and Johnson’s social media accounts to identify him as the suspect. A subsequent search of Johnson’s residence yielded a .380 handgun, an extended magazine with 9mm ammunition, a polymer 80 lower handgun receiver, a magazine with .40 caliber ammunition, and a box of .380 ammunition. A gray T-shirt matching the one Johnson was seen wearing on the day of the shooting was also found.

Johnson, a convicted felon, was arrested and charged with multiple offenses, including attempted murder, battery with a deadly weapon, assault with a deadly weapon, discharging a firearm from a vehicle, possession of a firearm by a prohibited person, and carrying a concealed weapon without a permit. He is currently being held at the Clark County Detention Center and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing in Justice Court on Oct. 17.
