Two juveniles are facing several charges after shooting a Fall River firefighter with a BB gun Tuesday afternoon, according to authorities.
Fall River Deputy Police Chief Barden Castro told 12 News that the firefighter was shot while officers were investigating an unrelated shooting near Third and Wade streets.
The firefighter was transported to St. Anne’s Hospital to have the BB pellet removed from his arm, according to Castro.
12 News reported that two bystanders and one vehicle were also hit by BB pellets.
Officers investigating the shooting were able to trace the BB pellets back to a second-floor apartment on Second Street, where they found two boys inside along with a BB rifle.
Both juveniles are scheduled to appear in Fall River Juvenile Court on several charges.
