At approximately 11:54 a.m., the University of Missouri Police Department was notified that a shuttle bus driver noticed what appeared to be two bullet holes near the right rear tire of the shuttle bus. The driver reported that around 9:45 a.m. while traveling north on Providence (MO 163) near Kentucky Boulevard he heard what sounded like a rock or rocks striking the side of the bus. When he stopped his bus around 11:54 a.m., he noticed the two possible bullet holes.
Neither the University of Missouri Police Department nor the City of Columbia Police Department have received any further reports of the same type of incident in the area or on the campus. It is uncertain as to the exact location this occurred as the City of Columbia Police Department continues to investigate this incident.
“The safety of our faculty, staff and students is our number one priority on campus,” MU Police Chief Jack Watring said. “At this time we do not have anything to indicate a threat to the campus community.”
