School bus window shattered by BB gun-wielding boy in North Carolina

A school bus transporting 12 kids and two adults back from a track meet had a window shot out by a boy with a "BB gun pistol."  Luckily, even though two kids were sitting in the seat next to the window, no one was injured.

From the article and news video:

Police say a juvenile playing outside with a BB gun accidentally shot a Beaufort County Schools activity bus Wednesday night. The gunfire shattered a window on the bus that was carrying the Northside High School track team. 
School system spokeswoman Sarah Hodges says no students were injured and fast thinking of the driver, who is also coach at the school, got the students out of harm's way. 
Hodges says the bus was on its way back to the school after a meet at Southside High School and had 12 students and two adults on-board. 
Lt. William Chrismon says it happened on John Small Avenue. He said the bus driver immediately left the area and got the children to a safe location. 
Chrismon says they are still investigating, but the case has been referred to juvenile authorities.
