Butler police are investigating a case of criminal mischief Friday afternoon when several people were hit with BB gun pellets at a wedding party on North Washington Street.

One person was hit in the neck and two were struck in the legs, said police Sgt. Jeremy Walters. Two others were apparently also hit.

“They left visible marks,” Walters said of the BB gun-fired pellets. The injuries were considered minor.

Butler Fire Department and Butler Ambulance Service medics tended to the victims.

Police are remaining tight-lipped about the investigating, but Walters called the incident “a deliberate act.”
