Teen questioned in Fairfax school bus shooting incident
Fairfax County police questioned a 14-year-old boy who might have shot at a county school bus Wednesday afternoon as he was shooting at birds in the Alexandria area of the county, officials said.
A school bus driver heard a loud noise and pulled over near Lincolnia Road and Columbia Pike shortly after 3 p.m., said Officer Sabrina Ruck, a police spokeswoman. The driver saw what appeared to be a bullet hole in the bus and called police, she said.
None of the 30 students or the driver were injured, Ruck said.
Police canvassed the area for more than an hour with cruisers, dogs and a helicopter before finding several dead birds outside a house less than a mile away, Ruck said. Officers said the teen had been shooting at the birds, but it was unclear whether he had shot at the bus, intentionally or not.
