Teen arrested after shooting at EVSC bus with an air rifle

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - A 15-year-old is arrested for allegedly shooting at a school bus with an air rifle.

It happened Thursday afternoon around 3:15 in the area of Rodenberg Avenue and N. Elm Avenue.

The bus driver was headed east on Rodenberg when a student told him one of the bus windows had been shattered.

The driver stopped the bus and found that a window appeared to have been hit by a BB pellet.

One student on the bus said his arm was grazed by the bullet but was not visibly hurt.

The Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office says witness statements led them to a 15-year-old who was seen pointing an air rifle at the bus right before the window shattered.

The teen was taken to the Youth Care Center.  He was arrested for criminal recklessness.
