COLUMBIA — A shuttle bus driver reported what appeared to be two bullet holes in the side of his bus to the MU Police Department around noon Thursday.

The driver reported hearing "what sounded like a rock or rocks striking the bus" around 9:45 a.m, according to a news release from the MU Police Department.

He was driving on Providence Road near Kentucky Boulevard at the time, according to the release. When the driver stopped the bus around 11:54 a.m., he noticed two possible bullet holes near the right rear tire.

The Columbia Police Department is still investigating where on the bus route the incident took place.

Neither police department has received any further reports of the same type of incident in the area or any other part of campus, according to the release.

If anyone has any information about the incident or was a passenger on the bus, please contact the Police Department or call CrimeStoppers at 875-TIPS (8477).
