ATLANTA, Ga. -- Parents told WSB-TV Channel 2 Action News they're upset about the way Atlanta Public Schools handled reports of a man waving a gun at a school bus in northwest Atlanta.
It's unclear if there is any truth to what children reported, but police are looking into it after Channel 2's Rachel Stockman called the district office Wednesday morning.
Parents said students were leaving Bethune Elementary, in northwest Atlanta, when kids on a bus saw a man waving a gun outside Tuesday morning.
"She was (really) hysterical, crying," parent Terry Seaborn said about her daughter.
An APS spokesperson said the bus driver reported hearing the kids yell "gun," so he turned back around to get an administrator, who rode the school bus with him. The administrator did not see anything on the route, according to officials. A police detective was notified Wednesday morning and came out to retrieve the bus's videotape.
Parents are concerned that they weren't notified and that more wasn't done immediately.
Another parent said the driver should have called police.
"(The driver) also should have called the police. If you have 30 to 35 kids on a bus, if they're telling you they're seeing a man with a gun -- whether or not you see it, you need to report it," the mother said.
APS officials said the case is under investigation.
