News Oct 30, 2009 Ancaster News

A couple of 16-year-old Dundas boys can expect a stern lecture about firing off paintball guns.

Several police officers, including, members of the emergency response unit, were called to a rural home on Patterson Road around 2 a. m. Sunday after a neighbour, who had let his dog out, reported shots being fired.

Police say the neighbour spotted two youth on the front porch of a nearby home and yelled at them. The boys went back into the house.

Police say they made several attempts to contact the occupants, including knocking on the door and phoning the home.

Around 10:30 a. m. the boys came outside and were arrested. A couple of paintball guns were found in the home.

Police say one of the boys lives at the house and the other was a friend. The teens were alone in the home at the time of the incident.

Rather than laying charges, police opted to give the teens a precharge diversion which usually includes counselling.
