(AP) – Madison police and school district officials are investigating an apparent pellet gun shooting involving two students on a bus route.

In an email to parents, Jefferson Middle School Principal Tequila Kurth says a student getting off a Badger bus Tuesday was hit by what is believed to be a pellet fired by another student on the bus.

Kurth says the school was alerted by the family of the student who was hit. The student’s condition was not immediately known.
