A student in Prince George’s County is lucky to be alive after a terrifying armed attack on a school bus.

Authorities are currently investigating the incident as an assault, but from what witnesses are saying, it sounds like attempted murder.

FOX 5’s Melanie Alnwick says it happened Monday afternoon on a Prince George’s County school bus. The driver stopped to let a student off at a stop by Iverson Mall when three teenage suspects wearing masks and hoodies pushed their way past the bus aide and began attacking another student.

Alnwick says one suspect pointed a gun at the boy’s chest and pulled the trigger, but the gun jammed. The bus aide said bullets fell to the floor.
