AUSTIN (KXAN) — A safety alert students should be aware of. An armed police impersonator pulled over an Austin ISD bus on Tuesday. The suspect was first seen taking pictures of Murchins Middle School students using the crosswalk.
The man dressed in a red shirt and tan shorts then flashed his headlights at a bus and approached at a red light. He asked about the bus driver’s route and pulled over the bus a second time telling driver he was “DEA” and “CIA.” Gigi Barnett is LIVE from the Middle School with updates on the search for the suspect.
