Shot fired at Fairfax school bus
Fairfax County police were questioning a 14-year-old boy who may have shot at a county school bus Wednesday afternoon, while shooting at birds in the Alexandria area, officials said.
Just after 3 p.m., a school bus driver heard a loud noise and pulled over near the intersection of Lincolnia Road and Columbia Pike, said Officer Sabrina Ruck, a police spokeswoman. The bus 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 they found several dead birds at a house near Summitt Place and Parramore Drive, less than a mile away, about 4:45 p.m., Ruck said.
Officers discovered the teen had been shooting at the birds, but it was unclear whether he had shot at the bus, intentionally or not.
