CLEARFIELD -- A 10-year-old boy was shot in the ear with a pellet gun Tuesday morning on his way to Holt Elementary School, police say.
Police arrested Johnathon Barringer, 18, of Clearfield, and booked him into Davis County Jail on one count of child abuse, two counts of discharging a firearm within city limits and one count of possession of tobacco, Clearfield Police Lt. Adam Malan said.
The boy reported the shooting at 9:15 a.m., but officers did not find anyone in the area with a BB gun at that time, Malan said.
At 11:15 a.m., officers were called about three teenage boys shooting crows from the roof of a house.
Barringer told police he had shot at a trash bin at Holt Elementary earlier Tuesday and "saw the boy walking by, so shot at him."
Malan said the boy has a superficial ear injury. The other two teens were not charged.
