School Rivalry Turns Into School Bus Vandalism
The bus driver (who was alone in the bus at the time) then heard a loud bang which she believed was a gunshot, followed by one bus window shattering out. Officers investigated the damage and determined that it was likely caused by a blunt object, such as a baseball bat, and not a firearm.
Administrators at Hoquiam High School were notified of the incident and did report that there had been some issues between some students at the earlier Hoquiam-Longview basketball game. The case has been referred to the school administration as well as detectives for additional follow-up. The suspect(s) responsible for the damage are encouraged to contact the school immediately.
