KINGMAN, AZ — Kingman police say one high school student accidentally shot and injured another male student on a school bus with a handgun brought to school.
Police Chief Rusty Cooper said juvenile charges of endangerment and other crimes would likely be sought against the 14-year-old who had taken the gun to school on March 23.
Cooper said the 14-year-old was handling the gun on the bus on the ride home to Dolan Springs the same day when it fired, shooting a 15-year-old student in the leg.
The student’s injury was described as serious but not life-threatening.
Cooper said the shooting appeared to have been reckless but unintentional.
