A young student is in ‘good shape' after being shot in the head with a BB gun after school.

After dismissal Friday, around 2 pm, the male student at the Urban Collaborative Accelerator Program was walking out to the yard when he saw another boy with a BB gun. That boy said something, and when the student said something back, the boy shot his gun.

According to Director Rob DeBlois, the student was hit in the head and treated by the school nurse. The shot caused a small cut and some blood but it did not appear to be a serious injury.

The school immediately called police and an ambulance took the student to the hospital where he is now in good shape.

Providence Police are still investigating who the shooter was.
