School bus driver stops gunman from boarding


KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A person who was denied a ride on a school bus fired shots at it as it pulled away, The Kansas City Star reports.

According to police, witnesses said that the person tried to board the high school-bound bus, but the driver turned him away because she didn't recognize him as a regular rider.

Witnesses said that the person appeared to be of high school age, and a Hickman Mills C-1 School District spokesperson told The Kansas City Star that he was polite to the driver. Yet as the bus drove off, the person fired several shots at it but didn't hit it, police said.

It makes you wonder if he tried to get on before another student he had bad intent for. The bus driver stayed nice to this kid and followed rules by kicking him off nicely.... a shout out to her. A Guardian Angel aboard? Perhaps. (Good guys don't shoot at school buses).
