Point Boro Boy Firing BB Gun Under Police Investigation
Boy fired BB gun into middle school windows
A 15-year-old boy is under police investigation for having a BB gun and firing it into Memorial Middle School windows, police said Wednesday.
Police received a report at about 1 p.m. Tuesday that a male dressed in black had a handgun at the middle school field, said Captain Richard Larsen.
When police arrived at the scene, they found a 15-year-old with a BB gun who was with two 14-year-olds. The older boy had fired the BB gun at the school, cracking at least a few windows, Larsen said.
The 15-year-old was taken into custody, interviewed at the police department and then released to the custody of his mother, Larsen said.
No charges have been filed so far, but Officer Chris Woit is continuing to investigate, said Larsen, adding that a BB gun is a firearm and can be extremely dangerous.
