No one was injured during the incident.

“When everybody just got off the bus I point at him and say ‘who’s that?’ and that’s when all the girls notice him and they just start screaming,” said Emily Portillo, who videoed the whole ordeal.

Portillo lives next door to the bus stop where in the incident occurred. she herself had just gotten off the bus.

“I thought it was a joke that’s why I had the guts to go chase him around,” she said.

Dunivin’s mother, Misty Dunivin, added, “I’m not going to lie and say he made the right most wisest of decisions, but let’s not carry it away to someone running away slaughtering people in April in a Halloween costume.”
