A firefighter was suddenly struck by a BB in his right arm, as a result, the firefighter was transported to the hospital to have the BB removed.
Within moments, two additional people were struck by BBs. One who was walking down the street and another who was sitting on a porch. It was also determined that a motor vehicle had been damaged by a BB shot.
Sgt Michael Hadaya, Ofc Peter DaLuz, and other officers on scene were able to determine that the shots were coming from a second-floor residence in the 400 block of Second Street.
As a result of the investigation, officers were able to locate two juvenile males along with a BB rifle.
