Bus carrying Northeastern University students allegedly shot at by BB gun

The window of a bus carrying Northeastern University students was reportedly shot out by a BB or pellet gun on Monday. 

According to police, the call came in just before 10 a.m. 

Boston Police were on the scene shortly thereafter. 

The bus was carrying at least 20 students on the men’s rowing team. 

The bus was traveling on Tremont Street in Roxbury. 

The pellet hit the driver’s side window.

‘No one was hurt.’

Police are now investigating. 

Officials at Northeastern believe it was likely a random act, but people on campus said the incident is concerning to them.

The University released a statement on Monday afternoon: 

A charter bus was hit by a BB or pellet gun near Tremont and Mass Ave. The Northeastern men’s rowing team happened to be traveling on the bus. Nobody was injured, everyone is safe, and it was most likely just a random incident with very minor damage to the outside of the bus. BPD is looking into it.
