MADISON, Wis. (AP) – A 12-year-old Madison boy is accused of shooting a 10-year-old in the face with a BB gun and trying to shoot another youngster.

Police say the shooting happened Wednesday night on the city’s west side after the older boy had been picking on the two younger boys for several days. Authorities say the 12-year-old walked up to the two, pointed the gun at the 10-year-old’s face and fired. The victim’s teeth were damaged. Police say he then pointed the gun at the face of the 11-year-old and fired, but the gun failed.

WISC-TV says the older boy ran away but was picked up by police a short time later.
