Police are in the process of filing an arrest warrant for a juvenile who they said fired a pellet gun at a school bus Thursday afternoon in Braddock.

According to Braddock Mayor John Fetterman, the bus was shot at with a pellet gun at the intersection of Copeland and Fourth avenues about 3:45 p.m.

“Thankfully it wasn’t a real gun, but at the end of the day the young man will be held accountable,” Fetterman said.

Authorities said elementary-aged students were on the bus at the time of the shooting, but none of them were injured.

Officials said a van picked up the students and transported them home.

The bus driver was injured by shattered glass. The driver's condition has not been released.

The suspect’s name has not been released.
