Georgia school: Teens board school bus, allegedly attack kids inside

DECATUR, Ga. — A group of older students allegedly boarded a school bus in Georgia and attacked elementary school students inside, sending one to the hospital, according to school officials. 

Two middle school students, one high school student and an 18-year-old non-student are accused of assaulting younger students onboard the bus Monday morning, according to a statement from the Dekalb County School District.

Officials said the bus was about 1 mile from Snapfinger Elementary School in Decatur, located just outside of Atlanta, at the time of the incident.

The statement said district police obtained warrants for the high school student and the 18-year-old. The two middle school students were transported to juvenile intake.

School officials sent a voicemail to parents saying the group of older students boarded the bus “to assault an elementary school student,” according to WSB-TV.

The hospitalized student’s condition was not immediately released.
