MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A 9-year-old Fergus Falls boy who was shooting his pellet gun picked the wrong target this week — the window of an occupied police squad car.

The officer was patrolling a neighborhood Tuesday when his window shattered. The officer wasn’t hurt.

He found the boy and pellet gun, then notified the boy’s parents of what happened.

A Fergus Falls Journal report says police will seek restitution for the cost of the window, which will likely be between $100 and $200. The police department is also seeking a juvenile petition of delinquency through the county.
