Gunman robs passengers on Metro bus in Seattle

SEATTLE (AP) - Some men riding a Metro bus in Seattle subdued a man who was robbing other passengers at gunpoint.

Police say a 19-year-old man boarded the bus Monday evening with a stocking mask on his face. He pulled a gun and was pointing it at passengers' heads as he took property from at least three people.

That's when a group of men tackled him and held him until police arrived. No one was hurt.
