KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A 28-year-old Kansas City man is facing nearly a dozen felony charges after police say he attempted to carjack several vehicles before trying to hijack a city bus.

The Jackson County prosecutor’s office says James Jackson was arrested June 30 after pointing a gun at a bus driver and threatening to kill everyone on the vehicle.

In addition to 11 felony counts, Jackson is accused of kicking an EMT in the mouth and spitting on a police officer, both misdemeanors.

Prosecutors say Jackson also aimed a handgun at a woman’s head and pulled the trigger but it didn’t fire.

Police say they found a vial of liquid believed to be PCP when they took Jackson into custody.

His public defender didn’t immediately return a voice message Friday afternoon seeking comment.
