Elementary school boy shoots girl in head with Airsoft gun while waiting for school bus

A group of students were waiting for their school bus at a bus stop in Hendersonville, Tennessee.  That's when a boy pulled out an Airsoft pellet gun that he was intending to take to school and shot a girl waiting with him in her head.

From the article:
It happened on Monday morning as students were waiting at the bus stop to go to Gene Brown Elementary School.

Police said a young student offered to show the gun to another female student. She declined, but he pulled it out anyway, then fired it several times. One of the plastic projectiles hit her in the head. 

The injured student was checked out by the school nurse, and was expected to okay.
School officials said that the boy who brought the gun would be charged with a delinquent juvenile offense.

This is the second time in a week airsoft guns have caused problems for area schools. Last Wednesday, two teenagers were arrested for firing at an Overton High School bus in Nashville.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
