Student shows BB gun on Waterloo school bus

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Waterloo Police say they are leaving it up to school officials to investigate a middle school student's display of a BB gun on a school bus.

A district spokesperson says the BB gun was shown to other students, one of whom told the bus driver, who informed officials of Hoover Middle School.

Officials say a search by the principal and assistant principal turned up the BB gun. Five students were detained and questioned about the gun, with the remaining students sent home.

Authorities say no threats were made and no one was injured during the Monday incident.

Officials say the consequences for the student involved with a gun could range from a few days' suspension to expulsion.
