2 Chesterfield school buses shot at, damaged while parked overnight


CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A Chesterfield County Public Schools bus driver is demanding answers after she found her bus shot multiples times last week.      

The driver and her husband, who is also a bus driver, woke up Thursday morning and found one of the buses shot four times in the 4700 block of Willesden Road.  

The next day the couple, who wished to remain off camera, found the windshield of the other bus had been shot three times. There were shots discovered on the side of the bus as well. 

“It made me kind of violated because I mean, it’s on my property,” said the bus driver. “And they’re out here shooting. What if my kids were outside? What if it happened during the day? So, I’m just concerned about people not showing respect for the bus driver.” 

Chesterfield County Police believe a BB gun was used in both shootings. 

The driver and her husband are currently using spare buses from the county while several windows are being repaired. 

The driver told 8News each damaged window will cost $150. 

“It’s just disrespectful,” said the driver. “I mean if kids were on there? What if it was during the day and I’m sitting out here washing it. I mean that could have been me.” 

Chesterfield Police said they are also investigating another damaged bus window, found parked at Meadowbrook High School over the weekend.
