His name was withheld by the police. 

The bus driver said the suspect asked to get off the bus and when he slowly stopped the vehicle on the side of the road, the suspect hit the right glass door with his cane, a police report said. 

He allegedly scolded the driver which resulted in fear, discomfort, panic, and disturbance to the driver and passengers, the report added. 

The suspect also became unruly during his  arrest and forcibly resisted creating injuries to his body, the police said.

 He was brought to the  Pontevedra Rural Health Unit for medical treatment, and is now detained at the Pontevedra Police Station.

The police responded and saw the suspect holding his improvised shotgun, which they seized.
