Teen cited for shooting at younger boys with Airsoft gun

MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison Police arrested a 16-year-old boy Saturday night for allegedly shooting two younger boys with an Airsoft gun.

One of the victims, a 13-year-old, told the officer the teen shot him in the arm and hand at close range. The second victim, an 11-year-old, says he was shot in the face from about 15-feet away.

Both told officers they did not provoke the suspect and weren't sure they it happened.

Police tracked down the teen and arrested him for two counts of Battery (with an airsoft gun).

This is obviously a poor example of airsoft gun safety and inproper usage of an airsoft gun.


  1. Interesting news. How 16-years old could have an airsoft guns? How about the regulation in there?

  2. It really gets on my nerves!

    My younger brother was shot by an air gun a few months ago.

    It has ended leaving him blind in one eye and the worst factor is that the person who shot him was a 9 year old boy playing with his older brothers air gun and the parents let him!
