IRON COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV) -- A man is accused of threatening to shoot a school bus that had children on it with an AR-15 in Iron County, Missouri.

The Iron County Sheriff’s Office alleges Bryan Baldwin was armed with an AR-15 with two loaded magazines and a handgun at the entrance of Hidden Valley and MO Highway 49 around 3 p.m. Friday. According to the sheriff’s office, witnesses said Baldwin said he was going to shoot the school bus.

It is unclear how many children were on the bus at the time. Annapolis, Missouri Mayor Scott Oatman said in a Facebook post the driver was approaching a routine stop when he saw a weapon under Baldwin’s shirt. No children were let off the bus at that stop, and the driver kept going. No one was injured in the incident.

Baldwin was taken into custody and faces multiple felony charges, but the sheriff’s office did not specify what the charges were. No other information was released.
