JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – School officials say two students have been shot on a school bus in Florida.

Duval County Public Schools spokeswoman Tia Ford says the shooting occurred Thursday afternoon on the west side of Jacksonville about 140 miles north of Orlando.

Ford says two people fired shots at the school bus. She says it is not clear if the people who fired the shots were students or adults.

Both victims were taken to the hospital, but Ford did not know their conditions.

Ford says the bus serves three alternative educational schools in the area of the shooting.
