In Robbinsdale, Minnesota, a school bus driver for the Metropolitan Transportation Network saw something by the side of the road. He stopped the bus and asked a 7th-grader to see what it was. It turned out to be a gun, so the driver told the student to bring it to him and continued with his route. When he arrived at school, he told his supervisors about the incident and said he'd take the gun to the MTN central office. School officials sent a letter home with students telling parents what had happened and urging them to discuss the situation with their children.
