    Auger emailed parents Monday night to say that the person responsible was arrested.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    He says the bus was bringing students home from the Fishing Cove Elementary School.

    After the shooting, the bus driver pulled away, checked on the students and called police. Students were taken home on another bus.

    Auger says the school department is cooperating with police.
