11 Year Old Boy Shot by a BB Gun in Driveway of His Kennewick Home

Posted: Updated:
KENNEWICK, WA - Kennewick Police are investigating after an 11 year old boy was shot with a gun similar to a BB gun or an Airsoft gun in his front driveway Monday afternoon. 

The boy told police that he was outside his home on the 1000 Block of 14th Place practicing his batting with a tether ball when a truck drove by and someone in the bed of the truck shot at him. 

He was hit once in the wrist and is expected to be OK. 

The boy ran inside to tell his parents as the truck sped away. 

The boy's father says he is extremely upset that someone would shoot at an 11 year old. 

"He was out here after school practicing his hitting. It's amazing you can't be in your own front yard and be safe anymore, to have some random drive by shooting at you. It's pretty scary," says Doug Du Von, the boy's father. 

The boy was able to identify the truck as a black four door Chevy with three people inside. 

If you have any information call Kennewick Police.
