KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Authorities say a school bus with students aboard was damaged and two adults in other vehicles were hurt in a Kansas City gun battle.

The shooting happened about 4:45 p.m. in the area of 45th Street and Elmwood Avenue.

Police spokesman Lionel Colón says none of the five children on the bus were injured when gunfire erupted.

A window on the bus was shot out before the driver could get it to a safe location. 

Kansas City Public School spokesman Ray Weikal says the bus was transporting students from an elementary school.

Gunfire also struck two other vehicles, injuring a man and a woman. Officers found the man near where the shooting originally happened. 

The woman showed up at the fire station at 32nd Street and Indiana Avenue. The fire station was placed on lockdown after the victim arrived there. 

The man experienced non-life-threatening injuries. The woman is in stable condition after she was previously reported to be in critical or serious condition. 

Police didn't immediately make any arrests. Colón says it's unclear if the man and woman were bystanders.

Anyone with information should call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
