School Bus Shot With BB Gun
Police on Friday were trying to determine who shot a school bus with a BB gun.
According to police, a school bus driver, driving on South Hamilton Road near Dundee Avenue, said that two windows were broken on the bus when it was shot by a BB gun at about 4:35 p.m. Thursday.
First Student School Bus Transportation Services said that 23 students were on the bus at the time of the shooting, and no one was injured, 10TV’s Tanisha Mallett reported.
Students were heading home from the Arts & College Preparatory Academy, located at 4401 Hilton Dr.
“We just heard the window shatter and nobody knew what happened,” a student, who was not named, said. “Then everybody started freaking out and moving to the other side of the bus.”
The students were transferred to another bus, and the bus that was shot was taken for investigation, 10TV News reported.
The bus driver reported seeing the BB gun shooter in a white car, Mallett reported.
One mother, who requested anonymity, had a message for the person who fired shots.
“The people who think it is okay to do these kinds of things, think,” the mother said. “Think before you act, because innocent people can be hurt. Thank God these children were okay.”
