Thankfully, JSO said none of the kids or the driver were physically hurt.

During an initial investigation by detectives with JSO’s Robbery/Violent Crimes Unit, multiple people at a nearby apartment complex were involved in a verbal argument. JSO said this led to an exchange of gunfire resulting in the school bus being struck.
