STEVENSVILLE, Del. - The Queen Anne's Sheriff's Office was called after a 6-year-old reportedly had bullets on the school bus. A Kent Island Elementary School bus driver told reportedly officials that he picked up several students at a stop, and one student handed him six bullets, as the child got on the bus.
During an investigation into the incident, the 6-year-old's backpack and classroom were searched, but no more ammunition was found. The child reportedly told officials that he had gotten the bullets at a relatives' house over the weekend. The child apparently gave the ammo to the bus driver, so that he could go hunting.
According to officials, the child denied wanting to hurt anyone. The parents of the child reportedly told officials that they don't have any weapons at home, and the relatives reportedly told them that their firearms were locked and secure at their home. No charges have been filed based on the child's age. The child was suspended from school.
