The vehicle did a U-turn and drove past the victims a second time. The vehicle then performed a third U-turn and slowed its speed on Greenlawn Blvd in front of the victims. As the victims proceeded past the vehicle they heard several pops to what they described as gun shots.

 The 13-year-old male was struck in the head by an unknown projectile and all victims fled toward Marldale Drive, where 911 was called. The victim suffered a small circular abrasion to the top right side of his head. Victims stated on scene that they believed they were assaulted by a BB gun.  Shortly thereafter, officers observed a White Cadillac Escalade DE PC184233 in the area of Weston Drive and Lindsey Court.  The vehicle was occupied by two juvenile males that fit the description provided by the victims. The juvenile males in the vehicle were taken into custody and an Airsoft gun (pictured above) was discovered in the vehicle. The males were charged with Reckless Endangering, Assault third degree, and Conspiracy third.
