Gun pulled on a Texoma school bus

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

A Texoma woman claims that a child pulled a handgun out while on a school bus in Wichita Falls.

Tyniia Witherspoon reached out to Newschannel 6 claiming that a gun was pulled by a young child on a Durham School Service Summer Bus in Wichita Falls. Newschannel 6 reached out to Durham School Services in Wichita Falls and were referred to the Durham corporate office who responded with the following statement about the incident:

"The safety of our students is our top priority, and we took immediate action following the incident by alerting the district, the district’s safety officer and then contacting the parents of the two students involved within 15 minutes."

It's unclear what type of hand gun was pulled on the bus or if the weapon was loaded when it was pulled.  There's also no indication if the incident will result in a new protocol or policy by Durham School Services or WFISD when it comes to the transportation of their students to and from a school campus.

While the incident on the Durham School Service bus did involve a gun, there was no official police report made because they were not required to make one.
