A school bus arriving outside a Seattle elementary school to pick up children at the end of the day on Thursday was struck by gunfire, prompting a lockdown of the school and a search for suspects, but no one was hurt, city police and school officials said.

The bus driver heard loud noises, then saw that two windows in the vehicle had been shattered and realized that the bus was under fire before he took shelter inside the school, Seattle Public Schools spokeswoman Stacy Howard said.
