Ryan says as the bus rolled in back to confirmed gunman Christopher Darnell Jones pulled out a firearm. “Chris got up and pushed Lavel Davis. And then after he pushed him, he was like, ‘You guys are always messing with me.’
“He said something weird like that. But it was very bizarre because they didn’t talk to him the whole trip,” Ryan recalled. “We thought he was going to shoot everyone on the bus at that point.”

Last time I spoke to him, he said some people was picking on him or whatever,” Jones Sr. stated. “He didn’t know how to handle it. I just told him, ‘Go to school. Don’t pay ‘em no mind.
