University Students Alerted About Teens Firing Pellet Guns
Lindenwood students and staff were notified to use caution this week when two teenage boys were seen shooting pellet guns on campus, according to an article on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch website.
Police officers searched the campus but did not locate the boys, who were reported to have been driving a white Hyundai. Witnesses said that the boys were shooting at signs, and not aiming their guns at students at faculty.
Although this is typical teenage behavior, shooting pellet guns in a public place is a very dangerous activity. Even so, with school out for the summer, it’s expected that kids and teenagers are going to engage in these types of practices, and sometimes with little to no regard for the safety of people around them.
