LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police and JCPS are trying to find out if gunshots, or something else, shattered two windows of a school bus that was transporting students home Tuesday.
No one was hurt. The incident occurred about 4 p.m. as bus 0664 from Crums Lane Elementary School was stopped at Crums Lane and Cane Run Road.
The bus carried 30 students. The driver "secured" students, finished his route and met police at the Lees Lane bus compound for an investigation, JCPS spokesperson Allison Martin said.
Police believe the bus was hit by a "projectile," and were checking to see if the incident was linked to a report of shots fired at a McDonald's restaurant in the 4400 block of Cane Run Road, LMPD spokesperson Alicia Smiley said.
An officer was examining the bus at the compound late Tuesday afternoon, Smiley said.
Peja Key said she saw the shattered windows as the bus brought her nine-year-old niece to her stop Tuesday afternoon. Key's niece was crying and upset after the incident and likely would not ride the bus Wednesday morning, Key said.
JCPS notified parents of the incident, Martin said.
