A ninth-grade student carrying a .357 Magnum revolver hijacked his school bus, shot the driver, then led police on a high-speed chase through Taylorsville, Utah, before killing himself. Police believe 15-year-old Justin Allgood put the gun in his mouth and pulled the trigger before the bus careened into a house. Students had scattered and the driver had gotten off the bus before the chase began. Allgood carried obituaries of three friends who died in traffic accidents over the last two weeks.
