Teen Shoots Bb Gun At Youngsters, Police Say

Post Falls police are investigating a before-school BB-gun shooting incident that occurred at a school bus stop Tuesday.

A teenager shot a BB gun filled with small rocks at a group of Prairie Elementary School students waiting for the school bus at Lincoln and 21st streets, according police.

No one was injured in the incident, though some rocks hit one student in the shoe.

The older students had been harassing the younger ones for days, throwing ice and eggs at them as they waited for the bus, according to what the victim told police. The victim picked up a rock and threw it at the older students, according to the report.

One of the teenagers then apparently went into a nearby home, got a BB gun and shot at the younger students. The gun was not brought to school, according to school officials.

The teenager told police he did not know the BB gun was loaded, and only wanted to scare the younger students.

updated  With the thunderous crack of a cannon and the sulfurous pop of a musket, the Battle of Gettysburg was on. The Union soldiers, clad in various shades of blue, moved slowly up the hill to the tune of artillery fire drowning out a lonely trio of musicians playing the songs of war. Beneath them and occupying a small meadow, Confederate infantry men and women fired in unison to their superior’s command, each snap bringing a flurry of gun powder dancing in the air.
