7 year old Connecticut boy injured by BB gun shot by local teen

BB guns can be dangerous. We have reported on this blog about injuries and even deaths by BB gun. A Connecticut teen was shooting at some younger boys and injured a 7 year old boy with a BB gun as the boy walked by on the street. From an article:
New Haven police have arrested an 18-year-old accused of shooting a 7-year-old boy with a BB gun.
Police were sent to Fair Haven just before 5 p.m. on Sunday and a group of children said they'd been on their way from a local bodega, when they heard a pop.
The 7-year-old boy said he heard something wiz by his ear, then felt a sting, police said.
The children led police to Carl Gee Jr.  and identified him as one of the two young men they said were shooting at them, police said. (...) 
Gee was arrested and charged with carrying a dangerous weapon, four counts of risk of injury to children, four counts of reckless endangerment and breach of peace and conspiracy.
Police said they are looking for his accomplice.
The victim's injury was not considered serious.
