An elementary school student fired a gun while in a crowded school bus on Tuesday morning in Seguin, Texas, reported ABC News.

According to the article, the incident occurred in a school bus transporting 37 students from three different Seguin Independent School District elementary schools.

A student from Jefferson Elementary School reportedly brought a .25-caliber handgun on board the bus and fired it. The news report stated that the bullet struck the back of a bus seat and was stopped by steel inside the seat, just as the bus arrived at the school.

Police Chief Jason Brady said the school bus driver took the handgun from the student, and no one was injured at the time of the incident.

The boy reportedly did not threaten anyone but will remain off campus while the shooting is investigated. The mother and other family members of the students were reportedly interviewed but declined to say who owned the gun.

No arrests or charges have been made at this report.
