ARLINGTON, Pa. — A 17-year-old student here was hit by a bullet while riding his school bus on Monday, police said.

The Pittsburgh Police Department posted on its Twitter page that officers responded to a local hospital around 6:41 p.m. for a report of a walk-in gunshot victim.

The bus driver, who was transporting students from New Academy Charter School, told police that she had heard two to three gun shots, and that the 17-year-old male student on the bus yelled that he had been shot in the shoulder. Two other students on the bus were not injured, police said.

Chris Togneri, a spokesman from the Pittsburgh Police Department, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that the gunfire apparently came from outside the bus, and that the student who was shot is in stable condition.
