 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.
