Transit Police report arresting a man they say displayed a gun to a bus driver and threatened to kill him and a fellow passenger he'd been bothering.
According to police, the driver of a 426 bus noticed Ricker threatening the woman around 7:50 p.m., called police and then pulled his bus over to await their arrival on Squire Road in Revere, near the Showcase Cinemas.
When the bus came to a complete stop the offending male stood up from his seat pulled his shirt up and displayed a firearm. As he did so he threatened to kill the MBTA bus operator as well as the female passenger. The offending male then exited the bus and fled in the direction of the movie cinema.
Officers arrived in time to arrest Hakeem Ricker, 20, and find the gun police say he tried to ditch. He was charged with assault by means of a dangerous weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition.
