Office of Gov. Doug Ducey

Authorities in Kingman say a high school student accidentally shot and injured another student on a school bus.

The Kingman Chief of Police says juvenile charges of endangerment and other crimes will likely be sought against the 14-year-old who reportedly brought the gun to school on March 23.

The student was handling the gun on the bus ride home when it fired, shooting a 15-year-old student in the leg. Authorities describe the injury as serious but not life-threatening.

They say the shooting appears to have been unintentional.
