The men were injured, but did not want to go to the hospital

Tannery Road

SOUTHWICK, Mass. (WWLP) – Imagine driving down the street, and getting hit with a BB gun. That’s exactly what happened to two men in Southwick on Friday.

Southwick Police Chief David Ricardi told 22News that a juvenile shot two BB-gun pellets out of a window on Tannery Road, striking two men in the neck on Friday. One of the men was driving a car at the time, while the other was riding a bicycle.

Andrew Booth of Westfield, who was one of the victims, told 22News that a pellet is still wedged behind his ear.

“I was coming down Tannery Road, and I just got hit. I heard a whistle noise, and a ‘pow,’ and kept driving down the road a bit, stopped, when I went like this, there was blood all over my hands,” Booth said.

Southwick police are still investigating the incident.
