YAZOO CITY, Miss. — The family of a girl accused of pulling a gun on students on a Yazoo County school bus said Friday that news coverage of the incident has been unfair.
Relatives of the 14-year-old girl said she was bullied by children on the bus — specifically, her family said, by Kaleb Eulls and his younger sisters. Eulls wrestled the gun from the girl and has gained national attention as a hero.
“I feel like if you are in school to get your education, you shouldn’t be bullied,” the girl’s cousin Royquita Dixon said. “There are two sides to every story.”
Dixon told 16 WAPT News that her cousin endured bullying on the bus every day, which is what led up to the incident, which was caught on surveillance video. The video showed the girl taking the gun from a backpack, loading it and then walking up and down the aisle of the bus, sometimes pointing the gun at students. Full story.
