Nobody was injured when a bullet hit an Armstrong School District van on Route 422 in Plumcreek on Tuesday morning.

State police are trying to determine who fired the bullet that hit the back quarter panel of the van owned by Barker Bus Company in Rayburn.

The van had a driver but no students when it was hit about 6:05 a.m., police said.

Police found a bullet fragment inside the bus's quarter panel but were unable to determine its caliber.

The shot caused an estimated $400 in damage to the van, police said.
