Juvenile Arrested After Shooting BB Gun Near School

A juvenile was apprehend by police today after shooting a BB gun near a school, prompting a brief lockdown at the school, TLS has learned.

A school official called police and LCSW and ordered the school to lock its doors this morning after spotting the juvenile shooting with the gun near the school’s campus – not knowing it was a BB gun. 

“BBs were landing in the school yard,” an LCSW member first on scene told TLS.

Sources tell TLS the boy had apparently set up a shooting target just outside the school’s campus, and was also attempting to shoot at birds.

When police arrived, the boy was gone, but was tracked down a short time later and taken to Police Headquarters.

He was released a short time latet and charges are pending, police say. [TLS-CCP/TLS-24]
