The Future is Binary – A six-year-old child and a 23-year-old male were struck by BB pellets in separate incidents, but no serious injuries were reported. 

On Tuesday, July 1, 2014 officers were dispatched to a residence in Beaverton regarding a six-year-old female who had been struck twice in the ear and once in the neck by plastic BB pellets. She had gone downstairs to wake up her 19-year-old stepbrother at approximately 10:45 a.m. when he got upset and fired several shots at her. The male then fled the scene but later turned himself in. He was charged with Assault with a Weapon. The six-year-old was not seriously injured and did not require medical attention. (12-124507)

In the early morning hours of Wednesday, July 2, 2014, a 23-year-old male reported that he was invited to an apartment on Nonquon Road in Oshawa by a male known to him. The victim reported that while he was walking into the building, three BB shots were fired at him. Two of the metal projectiles struck him – one in the chest and one in the arm. Officers responded and arrested three people in the apartment, however, all three were later released unconditionally. The injuries were described as minor, but the victim was taken to a local hospital to have the pellets removed. The investigation is continuing. (12-124882)

The DRPS wants to warn the public that BB guns should never be fired at or even directed at another person. They can cause significant damage if the pellets strike the eye or enter the ear or mouth.

Another significant concern for police is that most pellet handguns are manufactured to look exactly like real guns. Responding officers may not know the weapon is a BB gun from a distance or under low light conditions.
