WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) — Police say pellets fired from a BB gun cracked three windows on a school bus carrying high school students in Connecticut.

Authorities tell the Republican American no one was injured when the pellets struck the bus transporting students from W.F. Kaynor Technical High School in Waterbury at about 2:45 p.m. Wednesday.

The bus driver told police that students started screaming. The driver told a bus dispatcher who called the police.

One pellet was found inside the bus.

No arrests have been announced but a witness told police they saw two teenagers standing nearby and one pulled a black pistol from his waistband and shot at the bus.
