3 teens injured in drive-by bb gun assault
Three teens were left injured on the Stoney Creek Mountain Saturday night after a bb gun assault.
Just after 10 p.m., five teen males were walking north on Gatestone Drive when five other males drove up in a beige, four-door Saturn and began shooting at them with bb guns.
The suspects then jumped out of the car, pulled bandannas over their faces and demanded that one of the teens hand over his cell phone, police say. One of the suspects punched one of the victims in the face and grabbed his phone.
When the victim turned to run away he was shot in the back with a bb gun, leaving a "small injury," police say. Three of the teens end up injured in total - two shot with pellets and one punched in the face.
The suspects fled in their vehicle after the theft. Division Two detectives are still investigating.
