Boy arrested after reported shooting
A 13-year-old boy was arrested Wednesday after school administrators reported he shot another student in the eye with an air-gun at Marshall Middle School.
Police were called to Marshall at 9 a.m. on a report a student had shot another student with an Airsoft pistol.
School officials told an officer the boy fired the air gun twice and one of the shots hit another student in the eye, the report said.
The student told school officials in the presence of the officer that he shot the other student because another boy told him to. He said it was the second day he brought the air pistol to school.
The officer was given the air gun.
Juvenile authorities told the officer to transport the student to the juvenile detentions center.
