A 9-year-old boy shot three classmates with a BB gun Thursday at an elementary school in Pasadena, but none required medical attention, police said.
The boy fired a BB gun pistol about 7:30 a.m. at Washington Elementary STEM Magnet at 1520 N. Raymond Ave., according to Pasadena Police Department Lt. Bill Grisafe. The boy and his parents were contacted by police, who continue to investigate the incident, Grisafe said.
The boy was arrested and then released to his parents, police said. It was not immediately clear whether he will face further consequences.
The BB gun shooting at the Pasadena elementary school occurred just 10 minutes before the deadly Saugus High School shooting in Santa Clarita.
