AIRSOFT PELLET GUN FIRED IN SCHOOL BUS - Police say no injuries were reported after six students were shot with an airsoft pellet gun on a Harrison County school bus.

The bus was heading to North View Elementary, Gore Middle and Liberty High schools.

Police say a Gore Middle student bought the gun on the bus concealed in his coat to show friends at school.

School officials say that student and two Liberty High students allegedly fired the gun at three elementary students and three middle and high school students, who were hit in the neck, near the eye and the forehead.

Police say the Airsoft pellet gun shoots plastic gel-filled pellets.
