An Asheville woman shot in the head on a Greyhound Bus is on life support Thursday night and is suffering from serious brain damage. The father of her four children is facing charges of attempted murder. Police arrested Patrick Holliday Wednesday night near the bus station on Tunnel Road.
Police say Holliday shot Regina Robinson two times, not long after she had taken out a protective order against him. Court papers show the couple had a history of domestic violence.
Holliday is also charged with shooting at a cab driver as he tried to get away. Police say Junior Gillespie's quick thinking helped them capture Holliday before anyone else got hurt. He witnessed the shooting and says he felt others were in danger. So he called 911 and helped lead police to Holliday.
Authorities say Junior Gillespie is a hero. He tells News 13 he doesn't see it that way. Gillespie says he was raised to do the right thing and would do it again if he feels others are in danger.
