A man boarded a bus as it stopped at Boulevard and Burroughs Road and tried to take control of it, school district and Atlanta police officials said.

November, 2, 1995, 6:50 p.m. EST MIAMI, Florida - A man claiming to be armed with a bomb hijacked a school bus
Thursday and led police on a low- speed chase to Miami Beach, where he was shot and killed. The 11 fifth- and sixth-graders
still on the bus escaped serious injury as did the woman driver, who was hailed as a hero by school officials.
 The bus rammed a police cruiser on an expressway in the early stages of the chase and later hit a marked Dade County school
district car before the chase ended in gunfire. There was no bomb, but police, aware of the hijacker's threat to blow up the bus,
quickly dragged him away from the bus into a nearby alley.
the hijacker had just quit his job at Joe's Stone Crab restaurant and was demanding a conference with the Internal
Revenue Service in a dispute involving thousands of dollars in what the IRS was calling unpaid taxes. Police identified the
man as Catalino Nick Sang, 42, a native of the Dominican Republic who was of Chinese descent. His immigration records
indicate he legally entered the United States on March 28, 1984, as a Chinese specialty cook.src
