Bus Drivers Idle After 'Revenge' Killings Published: September 4, 2013

Half of the drivers who work a bus route on which two colleagues were shot to death last week, possibly by a woman seeking revenge for purported sexual abuse of female passengers, didn't show up for their jobs Tuesday, according to The Associated Press.

The AP reports only 10 of the 20 drivers assigned to the 4A bus route in this border city took the wheel, "because they are afraid," a dispatcher said.

Officials said plainclothes police officers were aboard some buses and conducting weapons searches to prevent further killings, according to the AP.
