Man hijacks Greyhound bus and threatens to kill everyone in IL

Suspect in Custody After'Possible Hostage Situation on Bus

Several law enforcement agencies from Wisconsin and IL reportedly are now at the scene, surrounding the bus.

"It nearly felt like a terrorist situation. He thought it was a training exercise", Schmaling said. Schmaling said he reluctantly complied and was taken into custody without incident.

Vargas-Rosas is being held at the Lake County Jail in IL but is facing a felony charge of making terroristic threats in Racine County. Authorities are looking to extradite him back to Wisconsin, where he is facing charges of making terroristic threats.

Margarito Vargas-Rosas, 33, was arrested after allegedly threatening to shoot and kill fellow bus passengers aboard a Greyhound bus Friday night.

"Several of my deputies activated lights and sirens and the bus continued Southbound into Kenosha County", Schmaling said.

Officials say they did not locate a weapon, however the Greyhound bus has been seized and will be thoroughly searched.


"He didn't stop after the first spike strip", Dodd said.

So far, no weapon has been recovered on the bus. No injuries were reported.

"I would have been happier if he would have pulled over and stopped as soon as he saw us", Schmaling said.

"Hopefully at the end of the day this individual is held accountable for his actions and ultimately brought to justice", Schmaling said. Passengers said the man became irate and started telling everyone he was going to kill them.

Police chased a Milwaukee-to-Chicago Greyhound bus overnight when it was reportedly hijacked by a hostage-taking gunman.
