Boy admits he shot
air gun at school bus
School children, some as young as 6, ran screaming to the front of their school bus Thursday afternoon when a projectile pierced a back window. No one was injured, and Pasco sheriff's investigators determined the incident was the work of two teenagers shooting a BB air pistol for fun. The bus, carrying 10 children, was on Lumberton Road, near Glory Road, about 4:20 p.m. Thursday when a child told driver Deborah Cochran that the bus had been shot, according to an incident report. Another child told Cochran about a teenager from the area who has previously tried shooting at other kids with a BB gun. Investigators interviewed the 14-year-old boy, whose name was not released, and he admitted he and friend shot first at a bucket, then at a passing school bus, the report says. The teen was referred to a youth diversion program. No arrests are expected.
