Mother: Child Bullied With Bullet On School Bus


UPDATED: Saturday March 30, 2013 12:43 AM

A Columbus mother plans to take her concerns over bullying to the prosecutor's office.

The mother did not want to reveal her identity out of fear after what happened to her son on a school bus.

She says her son, who attends Mifflin Middle School was threatened with his life.

"A boy threatened to shoot him, showed him a bullet and told him he had five seconds to run home," she said.

The mother says the boy threatened her son a second time when they got off the bus.

No gun was ever shown, but the boy and his mother are still shaken. The mother filed a report with police.

"To me, that's something serious, because if you have a bullet then there's a gun somewhere," she said.

The mother said everything was made worse after she said she never heard from Mifflin Middle School about the incident.

"I was never informed. No phone call, no letter sent home, nothing," she said. "Nothing ever was done about."

Now, she wants her son to get a fresh start at a new school.

"My son still wants to stay there because he doesn't want to have to change school in the middle of the year and make new friends," she said. "But I'm trying to tell him for the safety, you need to leave that school."
