A gunshot was fired in our general area and hit a school bus full of children - thankfully the bullet didn't hit the kids or the driver (it lodged in the roof of the bus, just behind the driver's seat). Our county started allowing rifles for deer hunting this year, and there have been 2 "incidents" since Saturday.

I guess the Hunter missed their target. It happens from time to time. It's a good thing no one was hurt.
Our county used to allow shotgun hunting, but not rifle hunting (a lot of "backyard hunters" in our area, so there are a lot of hunters shooting in close proximity to buildings, etc) - this is the first year rifles have been allowed, and this bullet obviously traveled a bit too far.
I am relieved that no one was hurt, but they might need to revise the hunting laws (with regard to required distance from buildings and roads) now that rifles are allowed.
It shouldn't matter if they miss the target or not. A good hunter never shoots into an area unless he know it is wilderness, not roads or housing....
