A 15-year-old girl was arrested Wednesday after police say she shot a boy with a BB gun.
The boy told police he was walking home from the Bridgewater Middle School, traveling on Mount Prospect Street with a friend, when two girls began yelling, according to a police report by Officer Matthew Snow.
The boy told police the girls, whom they knew, yelled “get off my block,” and then he heard a snapping sound and felt a pain in his right biceps.
The boys immediately ran to a nearby fire station to report the incident, which is when police were called around 3 p.m., according to the report.
After Snow and other police took the boys to the home to identify the shooter, a 15-year-old girl was arrested and charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. The girl, whose name was not released by police because she is a juvenile, was released into the custody of her mother.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
