A student was left injured after a Saratoga Springs high school team was shot by a passing vehicle while on their bus.

The Westlake High School girls wrestling team was coming back from a meet at Utah Valley University where their bus was struck by several rounds of a pellet or airsoft gun at around 9 p.m.

A statement made by the Alpine School District says that white pickup truck had pulled up alongside the bus and fired, damaging multiple windows and giving one student minor injuries. An investigation has been launched by police and they are encouraging anybody with information on who the suspect might be to call either the police department or the Utah Highway Patrol.
