Authorities removed about 60 young people from a Portage school district school bus as they searched for weapons this morning.

Police reported that nothing was found during the search.

Sgt. James Myers said Portage police were told a student on the bus yelled at a parent whose daughter had just boarded the bus suggesting someone might “return with real guns.”

On Wednesday, teens are suspected of shooting pellet guns at area homes.

The woman reported the comment to the bus driver, who reported it to the bus garage. Police were called.
