SALINA —Police are looking for the person who shot a teenage boy with a pellet or BB gun Tuesday evening.

Just after 7p.m. Tuesday, a 15-year-old Salina boy told police that he was walking in the 900 block of W. Republic Avenue when a black SUV pulled up and someone inside fired multiple rounds from a pellet or BB gun at the boy, according to Salina Police Captain Paul Forrester.

The boy said he wasn't sure of how many rounds were fired, but three struck him in the right waist area, right leg, and left ankle hard enough to break the skin, Forrester said.

The only description of the vehicle that the boy was able to give was that it was a black SUV with taillights that went all the way to the roof of the vehicle. The boy reported the incident Wednesday night, Forrester said. Police are trying to obtain video surveillance from the area, he said.
