Little Rock, Arkansas – On Wednesday morning, gunfire struck a school bus in Arkansas’ capital that was transporting a student home, but fortunately no one was injured in the incident.

According to Little Rock Police, they did not believe the bus was being targeted when its door was shot. By late Wednesday afternoon, no arrests or suspects in the shooting were announced.

The driver and a student who was being taken home after a summer program were the only ones on the bus at the time of the incident, a spokeswoman for the Little Rock School District said.

The district and police did not say how old the student was. According to the police, they would be giving extra patrols to the areas where the district has summer programs.

The shooting occurred weeks after a shooting at a Texas elementary school that killed 19 children and two teachers, amid heightened concerns about gun violence.
