Authorities: Nashville student shot on school bus

Nashville police say shots were fired Tuesday afternoon at a school bus, injuring a 16-year-old girl inside the vehicle.

Officers said the teen was shot in the right arm as classes were letting out at Pearl-Cohn High School. Another student scuffled outside the bus with three or four others and then got into the vehicle, authorities told WTVF-TV. At that point, shots were fired at the bus while it was in the school parking lot. Eight students were inside the vehicle.

A witness said five shots were fired, according to WSMV-TV.

Authorities say five people were apprehended and two guns were recovered.

Police said the girl's injuries were not life-threatening and she was conscious as she was taken away in an ambulance. No one else was hurt.
