A Very Different Kind of Hijacking...

Juventino Vallejo-Camerena "took over a frieght train" on Sunday night with a bow and arrow. Apparently he was holding the engineer and the conductor, but the crew members were able to escape and call the police.

"The man was aboard the train in western San Bernardino County when officers arrived. The man cocked the bow and pointed the arrow at officers, who opened fire.
Vallejo-Camerena suffered gunshot wounds to the left wrist and forearm that were not life-threatening.
He was treated at a hospital, then booked into jail for investigation of train robbery, assault and resisting arrest. It wasn't known when he would make his first court appearance." (source)
