    Police say a man was wounded and a school bus carrying special needs children was struck by a bullet during a shooting in Newark Thursday afternoon. 

    Officers were called to the 100 block on 1st Street at about 1:15 p.m. and found a man with a gunshot wound, according to police. He was taken to UMDNJ in stable condition.

    Police said a Camptown school bus was also struck by a single bullet as it drove through the area. There were six special-needs teens on board, along with two aides and a driver.

    None were hurt, but they were taken to the hospital as a precaution, police say. 

    Police are searching for three to four suspects who escaped in a black vehicle going westbound on 6th Avenue. 

    Anyone with information is asked to contact Newark Police at 877-NWK-TIPS.
