Man is accused offiring pellets at kids
BROOKSVILLE - A Brooksville man was arrested after shooting a group of children with a BB gun, authorities said.
The incident began as an argument Friday between Robah Beck, 18, and a neighbor while five children, ages 11 to 14, played in the neighbor's front yard.
Beck rode past the house on Canal Drive north of Brooksville and pulled out an Airsoft BB pistol and fired a number of plastic pellets that hit all the children numerous times, Sheriff's Office reports state. Beck told deputies the gun was empty and he did not shoot the children.
