Melbourne teen faces felonies after airsoft BB gun incident

A 13-year-old Melbourne boy will face 11 felony counts of firing into an occupied vehicle for allegedly firing into a school-bus near the 4300 block of Eleanor Drive about 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Melbourne police said.

Police said Marquise Culbreth and another juvenile, against whom charges are pending, fired into a Brevard Public Schools bus using a BB airsoft gun. There were 10 students from Johnson Middle School on the bus but no injuries were reported, police said.

Police said the two juveniles were waiting for the bus and Culbreth shot at the bus with a BB airsoft gun, breaking a window on the bus near where a student was sitting. He was arrested at the scene.

The second juvenile had an AirSoft plastic gun with him and used it to fire plastic projectiles at the bus, Melbourne police said.

Both the juveniles and their parents cooperated during the investigation, Melbourne police said.
