Rickey Waggoner, 49, stopped his bus just before 5:30 a.m. to fix a mechanical problem when police said when he was confronted by the teens.
He told police he was working on the bus when they approached from behind and he heard one say, "If you want to be all the way in the club, you have to kill the polar bear."
Waggoner said he turned to see three males, one with a gun pointed at his chest.
He said the gunman fired twice.
Investigators say Waggoner had a religious devotional called "The Message" in his left front shirt pocket that stopped the bullets and saved his life.
