Five juveniles accused of shooting postal worker with BB gun in Nedrow

Onondaga County

Five juveniles are facing charges after allegedly shooting a postal worker with a BB gun.

The Onondaga County Sheriff's Office says the juveniles were playing with the gun in a home on Gibson Road in Nedrow when the postal worker came up to the door. At that point, they allegedly shot her in the leg, deputies said.

The postal worker suffered minor injuries with welts on her leg.

Deputies said the parents and grandparents of the suspects were "cooperative" and escorted the juveniles to the Nedrow Fire Department where they were taken into custody.

The Sheriff's Office says the juveniles were charged with second-degree Reckless Endangerment and a charge for having the BB gun. They have since been released on appearance tickets.

Postal Inspectors were also involved in the investigation, deputies said.
