WATCH: Dramatic Video Shows Bus Passengers Taking Down Armed Man

Surveillance video from a Seattle Metro bus released this week show passengers tackling an armed man to the ground when he tried to rob one of them at gun point. The initial victim can be seen swatting the gun away before several other passengers come to his aid, jumping on the assailant and holding him down while others fled for the exits.

The video was presented by prosecutors in the case against 19-year-old Trevonnte Brown who pleaded not guilty to robbery charges. Brown is on trial now for the incident, which occurred on November 25th.
