Merced School Buses Windows Shot Out

Fresno, CA It happened near the visitor center at the San Luis Reservoir in Merced County. Officers said someone shot at the buses with a pellet gun.

One of the drivers said they had to pull over the entire caravan when it happened.

"We got to the visitors center and stopped there and found that 4 buses had been hit with some kind of object and broke out the windows," said bus driver Nick Francis.

C.H.P. investigators said they believe the shots were fired from a passing vehicle because they came at close range. But they don't have a description of that car.

The students were going home from a band competition in Santa Cruz. They came from Merced, Golden Valley, and Buhach Colony High Schools.

No one was hurt.
