HAVERHILL, Mass. (AP) — Police officers have been assigned to school buses in Haverhill after windows on two buses were shattered by what investigators believe were BB or pellet guns.
Some of the students on the buses were showered with glass but no serious injuries were reported after the incidents on Thursday. Police aren’t sure who was responsible.
Lt. Robert Pistone said the first incident involved a bus carrying 4- and 5-year-old preschool students. The second occurred later in the day and involved a bus with high school students aboard.
Officials say police will ride school buses as a precaution on Friday. The city had already beefed up security at schools in response to last week’s deadly shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.
