Honolulu police are investigating after a boy was hit by a BB gun.
It happened Tuesday afternoon in Pearl City.
The case has been classified as second-degree assault, which is a Class C felony punishable by up to five years in prison.
That same day in the same area, BBs were also fired at dogs.
Police have opened a separate investigation and are looking into whether the two cases are related.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
