Watertown Man Arrested for Shooting Teen in the Neck with BB Gun
A 18-year-old man threatened two teens at the Tedeschi on Main Street, and shot one with a BB gun.
A 15-year old boy told Watertown Police that he was shot by a BB gun after he got into an argument with the man outside the Tedeschi Food Shop on Main Street, said Watertown Police Lt. Michael Lawn.
David Edward Reilly, 18, of 14 Green Street in Watertown, faces charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon following the incident on Oct. 30 at 5:08 p.m.
"The boys stated he had a verbal altercation with Reilly, and then went into the store," Lawn said. "When he came out, Reilly pointed a BB gun at him and shot it and hit a 15 year old in the neck."
Reilly ran from the scene, but police tracked him down later in the day. Police also discovered that Reilly was wanted for arrest on a probation warrant, Lawn said.
