Pa. youth suspended, cited for shooting classmate with BB gun



Published: Sat, May 25, 2013 @ 6:45 p.m.

WEST CHESTER (AP) — Police say a suburban Philadelphia high school student was cited and suspended after a classmate was shot with a BB gun in homeroom.

Investigators in Chester County allege that the 16-year-old student brought the gun to Rustin High School on Thursday and other students encouraged him to fire it at a friend.

Westtown-East Goshen police said in a statement that the victim was uninjured by the plastic pellet except for a “minor red mark” on his chest.

Police said school officials learned about the matter from an anonymous note from another student.

Police said the student will be cited for the summary offenses of disorderly conduct and sale and use of air rifles.

School district officials said he had been suspended, citing a “zero-tolerance” policy on guns in school.
