As Russia Invades Ukraine, Child In The Bridges Accused Of Shooting Child In Seven Bridges. Police Investigate. Neighboring Communities NOT At War…
BY: STAFF REPORT | BocaNewsNow.com
UPDATE: 6:55 p.m. BocaNewsNow.com has learned that there are questions being asked as to whether the BB gun was actually an “Orbeez Gun,” and whether the parents of the alleged victim have misrepresented the seriousness of the incident. PBSO continues to investigate all sides of the allegation. We note a Florida child was charged with a felony in December for shooting an Orbeez gun in Volusia County.
DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — It’s not exactly Russia invading Ukraine, but BocaNewsNow.com has learned that a child in the community of Seven Bridges was shot by a child who lives directly across the street — in ”The Bridges” — with a BB gun Tuesday night. The two communities are not at war.
Sources tell BocaNewsNow.com that the child with the BB gun was dropped off by his parent and was expected to visit someone in Seven Bridges. At some point, the child with the BB gun, apparently roaming the community with no parental supervision, shot at the victim — a pre-teen boy. Both the alleged shooter, and the victim, knew each other. It is not immediately known what led to the altercation, or whether the parent of the child with the BB gun was aware that his or her child was toting a weapon when he was left in the Seven Bridges community. It is also unclear why the twelve-year-old victim was apparently unsupervised in the community after dark.
BocaNewsNow.com has learned that The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the shooting which left the victim with superficial wounds. If an adult had fired the BB gun, prosecutors could pursue felony charges. There is no word yet what — if any — charge could be pursued as a result of this incident, or whether the parents of the child with the BB gun could face criminal prosecution.
