U.S. marshals in Houston stormed a city bus yesterday and arrested two fugitive gang members wanted in connection with the fatal shooting of a 14-year-old honor student aboard a Montgomery County bus this month, authorities said.Speaking of MoCo's bus system: County Executive Ike Leggett has once again proposed cutting service on some Ride-On routes to help close the budget gap. In East County, you'd find fewer buses on Route 4 between Silver Spring and Kensington, which would lose midday service; on Route 26, which runs between Glenmont and Montgomery Mall, which would no longer stop at the Trolley Museum in Colesville on weekends; and Route 18 between Silver Spring and Langley Park, which will now run every 30 minutes during the afternoon.
"It's kind of poetic justice that they were arrested on a bus," said Alfredo Perez, a deputy marshal who took part in the operation.
