Police investigating whether bullet hit Northside High bus

Columbus police are investigating whether a bullet hit a bus carrying the Northside High football team Friday night.

"We're not sure at this time whether it was a bullet," said Columbus Police Lt. John McMichael. "We do know a window was damaged."

James Wilson, the principal at Northside, sent a message to parents early this morning saying that around midnight the bus was traveling north on I-185 near the Buena Vista exit when a gunshot reportedly struck a bus window and exited a window on the other side.

He said, "we are grateful no one was seriously injured."

He said he did not think anyone on the bus was a target.
