PITTSBURGH —

A 10-year-old boy was shot with a BB gun, and his mom said a teenager pulled the trigger.

Police are investigating the incident that happened on Rectenwald Street Sunday.

“He aimed it at my son’s face and shot at his face, merely missing his eye by inches,” said the victim’s mom.

The mom is worried the teenager who did it could hurt another child.

The boy checked out OK at the hospital.

He said he’ll be spending less time outdoors.

“I’m kind of afraid.  I just want to stay in the house with my friends,” said the boy.
