Police ID suspected school bus shooter in Jacksonville

Published: Updated:

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – Authorities say they are looking for a 16-year-old boy who they believe fired a gun at a school bus, wounding two girls.

Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office Director Tom Hackney told reporters on Friday that the suspect and two other teenagers got into an argument with two other teens on the bus.

Hackney says the argument was over another person who died previously.

He says as the bus pulled away at least three shots were fired.

Hackney says the two girls, ages 14 and 15, who were struck inside the bus were not the intended targets. Their injuries are not life-threatening.

The Associated Press is not naming the juvenile because he has not yet been charged with a crime.
