A San Antonio fugitive hijacked a bus and shot two police officers before being killed by law enforcement on Sunday.
Ramon Thomas Villagomez was already wanted for the murder of his ex-girlfriend and for an assault in Brazoria County. Dallas-area police first received reports of an armed man boarding a DART bus on Sunday morning, later hearing word that the man was shooting out the windows of the bus. He compelled the bus driver to drive away from law enforcement, holding the man at gunpoint.
Police went on to chase the bus through Richardson, Garland, Rowlett, and into Rockwall, with the suspect firing upon the authorities as he was pursued.
Video of the event showed police cars chasing the runaway bus down the highway:

“Throughout the entire time of the pursuit, shots were continuously being fired from inside the bus to our officers, and our officers were returning fire,” said a spokesman for the Garland Police Department. “There was an immediate threat to and danger to the people on the bus. That’s why we were pursuing the vehicle.
The bus was ultimately stopped with the use of spike strips on the northbound lanes of the President George Bush Turnpike. Villagomez exited the vehicle, and was killed by gunfire from police shortly after.
Two officers were shot, receiving non-life threatening injuries in the course of the pursuit. A bus driver and the sole other passenger who were on the bus were unhurt.

Virginia’s Ralph Northam Caught At Beach Without Facemask, Social Distancing
Northam has mandated strict coronavirus restrictions.
A new photo has emerged of controversial Virginia Governor Ralph Northam inspecting safety measures while inspecting a public beach at Virginia Beach. In the photo, Northam is neither wearing a facemask or keeping six feet of distance away from other people, as suggested by social distancing guidelines.
Northam was caught engaging in the hypocritical conduct on Saturday.

As Governor, he’s urged Virginians to wear face masks and to maintain social distance from others. The state is currently slated to keep its stay-at-home restrictions in place for a lengthier duration than other states, with one public health official claiming that the state’s reopening would be a “two year affair.”
The Governor’s staff issued an excuse for his irresponsible conduct on Saturday, claiming ignorance towards the possibility of entering close proximity with other people.
JUST IN: Statement from @GovernorVA on not wearing a mask today while in Virginia Beach. “The Governor has repeatedly encouraged wearing face coverings inside or when social distancing is impossible. He was outside today and not expecting to be within six feet of anyone.” @NBC12

This isn’t the first report suggesting that Governor Northam is engaging in rank hypocrisy amidst widespread disruption to the lives of everyday citizens during the coronavirus epidemic. Multiple witnesses in Dare County, North Carolina, have claimed that either Northam or his personal family members have violated both county and state stay-at-home restrictions through travel to Northam’s luxurious oceanfront vacation home. Northam denied the reports, but is yet to answer why cars with his distinguishable license plates have been arriving at the gated community where his vacation home is.
The beachfront incident is perhaps the latest corroborating evidence of hypocrisy and an elitist double standard. Luxury and leisure for me, and restrictions for thee?
