Gun cartridge found on Aurora bus; no injuries reported

Published:

Aurora — A .22-caliber gun cartridge was found Dec. 14 on an Aurora school bus, but no one was injured, no weapon was found and no one was thought to be in danger, Superintendent Russ Bennett said.

Bennett said an elementary school student found the cartridge on the floor of a bus at about 9 a.m.

He said as a precautionary measure, the school staff reviewed the video tapes on the bus and with the cooperation of Aurora police, they searched the students, lockers and personal bookbags of all the students in grades 6 to 12 who ride that bus. He said about 50 students were searched.

“Nothing was found that would cause concern,” he said. “No weapons were found, and at no time do we believe any students were in danger.”
