SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - A thirteen-year-old Sioux Falls boy is charged with aggravated assault after he allegedly shot two boys, a four-year-old and an eight-year-old, with a B-B gun.
Officer Sam Clemens says the boys had been playing separately in a northwest Sioux Falls field near West Grove Place.
Clemens says the four-year-old had a small neck wound and the eight-year-old been shot in the back. The eight-year-old says the older boy shot at him three times. That victim could provide police with the name of the 13-year-old who lived nearby. Clemens says police found the handgun-style B-B gun hidden in a pile of tree branches.
Clemens says the boy is also charged with discharging a firearm in city limits. He was taken to the Juvenile Detention Center. His name will not be released.
