WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — Worcester police have arrested two young men they say were shooting people with a BB gun.

Two victims, reportedly shot in the head on Wednesday morning, were taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries that were not life-threatening. Witnesses say a third victim, a woman struck in the leg, left the area before police arrived.

Police charged 19-year-old Christian Cruz and 20-year-old Kennie Mota-Cruz with three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and discharge of a BB gun or air rifle on a public way.

Authorities say they were shooting from inside an apartment

It was not clear if they had attorneys.
