SUSPECT POINTS GUN AT SCHOOL BUS:

Crime Stoppers needs your help identifying a suspect wanted for pointing a gun at a Jefferson County school bus. Detectives also need your help identifying another suspect who was with the first suspect during the incident.

A picture of the man police said pointed a gun is posted to the right of this story.

The incident occurred at the intersection of 15th Court Northwest and Glenwood Street January 24th around 4:30 pm.

"The bus driver driving the special-needs bus had one student and one teacher's aid on the bus," said Jefferson County Detective Brian Allison. "This is a stupid act committed by one person against the most innocent among us."

No one was harmed in the incident.

BIRMINGHAM HOME INVASION:

Detectives also need your help identifying four suspects wanted in a home invasion/robbery that occurred on Castlemaine Court February 8th around 7:30 am. The police sketch of one of the suspects is posted to the right of this story.

Detectives said the suspects approached a father at a residence, handcuffed and tied him and his family, stole money and more from a safe, and left in the victim's car.

The vehicle posted to the right of this story is a picture of the vehicle the suspects are believed to have left in.
