SEGUIN, Texas — No one was injured after an elementary school student in Texas fired a gun while on a crowded school bus, police say.

The bullet hit the back of a bus seat and was stopped by steel inside the seat as the bus arrived Tuesday morning at Jefferson Elementary School in Seguin, about 30 miles north. northeast of San Antonio, according to chef Jason Brady.

The bus driver then took the .25 caliber handgun from the student, Brady said.

Seguin Independent School District Superintendent Matthew Gutierrez said the student was a boy, but declined to reveal his grade or age. He called on parents to make sure their guns are safely stored.

“Often children see guns as toys and don’t know anything about it. But unfortunately, we live in a world where tragic events happen almost daily,” Gutierrez told a news conference.

The boy did not threaten anyone and will remain off campus while the shooting investigation is investigated.

The bus was carrying 37 students from three different Seguin ISD elementary schools, according to a district statement.

The student’s mother and other family members were questioned and declined to say who the gun belonged to, Brady said.

No arrests or charges have been announced.
