No One Hurt in Shooting at Chattanooga, Tenn., School Bus Stop

A drive-by shooting took place at a school bus stop this morning in Chattanooga, Tenn., according to the Times Free Press.

A mix of elementary, middle, and high school students were waiting at the bus stop when gunfire broke out around 8:20 in the morning. Even though witnesses said they heard as many as 20 shots, no one was hit.

More from the Times Free Press:

"It appears some kids at the bus stop had some sort of warning as the shooter approached -- witness said the students started to run seconds before the first shots were fired.

... A man who asked not to be identified said a school bus arrived shortly after the shooter was gone. "[The kids] jumped on that bus like it was the safest place to be," he said.

Police have one suspect in custody and are looking for a second. The paper reports there have been 107 shootings in the city so far this year.
