Two 10-year-olds saw a man fire shots at a school bus stop, a parent reported to the Catawba County Sheriff's office. No one was injured. It happened at the intersection of East Maiden Road and Buffalo Shoals Road.

The parent told deputies three shots were fired. The children said they saw the man in a red and white pickup truck fire a "long gun." Deputies have increased patrol in the area, and at all Maiden schools. They are investigating.
