Four teenaged boys are facing charges after a house in Regina was shot with a pellet gun.

Police say they were called to a house in the 1600 block of Rae Street on Tuesday evening after the homeowner reported a projectile had broken her window.

The homeowner said she saw people running into a nearby house. Police determined there had been a confrontation between a group of boys and another boy on the street.

It’s alleged one of the youths held a pellet gun up to the victim and tried to fire it, but it malfunctioned, police said.

The victim went into a house and it’s alleged the pellet gun was fired at the house, breaking the window.

Officers arrested four boys, between the ages of 13 and 16, without incident.

The four teens are charged with assault with a weapon, mischief under $5,000 and discharging an air pistol with intent. They cannot be named under provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

All four made their first court appearance on the charges Wednesday morning.
