ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Officials say a bogus shooting call at a school bus depot caused buses to be delayed nearly 20 minutes Thursday morning.

Authorities said around 5:40 a.m., a call came in reporting 10 armed men stormed into the First Student bus depot at Union and Brown streets in north St. Louis and started shooting.

Police arrived at the scene, but were unable to find any suspects or evidence suggesting any shots were fired.

Patrick Wallace with St. Louis Public Schools said some of their buses were delayed. Wallace is telling parents if their child’s bus is more than 10 minutes late to call the transportation number they have been provided.
