3 youths charged in connection with BB gun shooting in Kamloops

RCMP say three youths have been charged with assault with a weapon in connection with Thursday's BB gun incident in Kamloops, B.C.

A young male was shot with a BB gun near Brocklehurst Middle School early Thursday afternoon and was taken to hospital with minor injuries. The incident prompted a lockdown of the school. 

The victim has since been released from the hospital, according to RCMP.

None of the people involved in the incident are students at the school.

After being charged, one of the three youth males was re-arrested for breaching his conditions within hours of his release. He is now in custody and will appear in Kamloops court this morning.

The investigation continues, and police are asking anyone with information about the incident to contact Kamloops RCMP.
