Officials at Clear Creek Intermediate School on Friday were investigating a report that a student had shot another student with a BB gun.

A student reportedly took a BB gun to a bus stop and shot another student before the bus arrived, officials said.

The student then boarded the bus with the BB gun in his backpack, but showed it to students on the bus and it went off, officials said.

The student that was shot did not immediately report the shooting, officials said.

School leaders are investigating the incident and the accused student is not at school, officials said.

“We are still gathering information from witnesses, but I can assure you that the student who allegedly had the BB gun is facing criminal charges and is not on campus,” Principal Marshall Ponce said.
