Police in Fairfax County, Virginia have charged a 14-year-old boy with firing a gun at a school bus full of children.

Police say a school bus driver heard a loud noise Wednesday afternoon and pulled over to find what looked like a bullet hole in the bus.

Officers canvassed the area, near Oak Ridge Drive between Columbia Pike and Lincoln Road, and found several dead birds at a house less than a mile away.

There they also found a 14-year-old boy who had been shooting at the birds, along with the weapon police believe he was using.

After questioning the boy, police charged him with reckless discharge of a firearm and shooting at an occupied vehicle.

There were 31 children on the bus as well as the bus driver. No one was injured.
