Teens charged after pellet gun fired from moving car
Incident happened Thursday afternoon near Mic Mac Mall
Two teenagers have been charged with possession of a weapon and mischief after a vehicle on Highway 111 was struck by pellets from an air gun on Thursday afternoon.
Halifax Regional Police got a call at 4:30 p.m. from a driver whose vehicle had been shot at while passing Mic Mac Mall on Highway 111.
No one was injured.
The complainant followed the car in question and told police three young men were inside.
Halifax Regional Police officers pulled the car over on Pleasant Street near the Imperial Oil Refinery, arrested three youths and seized three pellet guns.
Although three people were arrested, only two were charged — a 15-year-old boy and a 16-year-old boy, both charged with mischief and possession of a weapon dangerous to the public.
Halifax Regional Police said they believe there may be other witnesses or victims of this incident and are asking people to contact them.
