Police have concluded that a bullet found on a Kings Park school bus on Jan. 7 was from a memorabilia collection in a family home and that a kindergarten student took the bullet on to the bus.
According to a statement on the district’s website, the kindergartner placed the bullet in a jacket pocket, which fell out, and was found wedged in the seat by another student.
The bullet, which was approximately four inches long, appeared to have been manufactured for a pre-World War II rifle, according to the district. The school notified police of the incident when the bullet was found.
Police have determined that there was no criminal intent involved.
