BROWNSVILLE - Three boys from Brownsville are accused of shooting a 12-year-old in the face with a BB gun. They face charges for injury to a child.
The incident happened over the weekend on the 1900 block of Taxco Drive. Police said the boys were shooting at the victim's window, trying to get the 12-year-old outside to play. The 12-year-old stepped outside but turned to walk back inside the home.
According to officers, that's when the trio shot at the 12-year-old with an air gun. We're told the victim suffered minor injuries to his face and knee.
Authorities said even a BB gun can be a lethal weapon if not used responsibly.
