OAK GROVE, Ore. — A man who’s not allowed to have a gun because he’s a felon is back in jail after the gun he was carrying went off on the line 33/McLoughlin bus just before noon on Friday.
42-year-old Troy Robanske of Gresham had the gun in a case. When he reached inside, it went off as the bus traveled near Concord Road. The bullet hit the floor, but nobody was injured. There were about 20-25 passengers on board.
The driver stopped at the next stop and Robanske got off. He ditched the .380 semi-automatic firearm in the bathroom of a business. When confronted by officers, he told them he didn’t have a gun, only bullets.
It’s unclear whether the safety was on or what Robanske was reaching for.
