Police Monday arrested a 16-year-old boy they believe is responsible for shooting at a school bus with a pellet gun, striking a student in the head, following a football game at Granite High School last week. Granite School District spokesman Randy Riplinger confirmed the boy arrested is a Granite High student. The boy, however, has not attended many days of class this year, he said. The boy was booked into the county juvenile detention center late Monday on suspicion of aggravated assault, a 3rd degree felony, said South Salt Lake police Capt. Chris Snyder. Several small fights broke out on the field after Cedar City's Canyon View defeated Granite's football team Friday night, Snyder said. As the Canyon View bus was leaving the school grounds, a car carrying Granite students pulled in front of it and at least one person got out and fired a shot. A Canyon View student was hit in the head with a pellet. The student was treated for the injury and allowed to return home with his classmates on the bus. - Michael N. Westley
