A passenger on board the shuttle service from Newark (EWR) to Boston (BOS) could not pay his fare. He pulled a gun and went to the flight deck. A struggle ensued and the hijacker shot both pilots. He also sustained wounds in the chest himself. The copilot died, but the captain managed to land the plane safely at Boston. The hijacker was arrested by police.
