Students on a Battle Creek school bus got a bit of a scare after a small projectile hit their vehicle Tuesday.

The Battle Creek Public Schools announced on their Facebook that Tuesday afternoon, a district school bus carrying students home from the Post-Franklin and Verona Elementary Schools was struck by an object, cracking a window. Police were contacted by Dean Transportation personnel, and their investigation determined that someone had fired a BB gun at the bus.

No students were injured, and all of the passengers were transferred to a different bus to be taken home safely.

While most people consider BB and pellet guns to be toys, they can be dangerous; in rare cases, they can even result in death, like when a Georgia man killed his 18-month-old son after the BB gun he was holding went off and hit the child in the head.

If you have any information about this incident, you should contact the Battle Creek Police Department or Silent Observer.
