Police to guard Clayton Co. school buses after rifle threat

HAMPTON (AP) -- Police cars will guard students on school buses after a man was seen aiming a rifle in the direction of a bus.

Police say they found the rifle and a notebook full of school bus numbers after a witness reported seeing the man aim the weapon toward a bus Monday morning.

Clayton County schools spokesman David Waller says that police will accompany school buses in the area through the end of the week or until the suspect is apprehended. He said recess will be moved inside.

Police reports say the man dropped the gun and ran when a witness yelled at him. Clayton County school officials say another witness chased the man but stopped when the suspect fired a second gun at him.
