Thursday, November 04, 2004

LITTLE EGG HARBOR, N.J. — A National Guard F-16 fighter jet on a nighttime training mission Wednesday fired 25 rounds that tore through a Little Egg Harbor elementary school.

No one was injured.

The military is investigating the incident that damaged Little Egg Harbor Intermediate School shortly after eleven o’clock.

Police were called to the area when a custodian heard what sounded like someone running across the roof of the school.

Police Chief Mark Siino says police officers noticed punctures in the roof. Ceiling tiles had fallen into classrooms and there were scratch marks in the asphalt outside the building.
