Police have confiscated a BB gun from two boys after a member of the public was shot with the weapon on Broadway Ave in Palmerston North.

Just before 4.30pm yesterday police were called about two youths who had been spotted with a BB gun inside the Downtown Shopping Centre.

Police constable David Schmidt said the person who was shot was not injured as it was a relatively low-powered gun.

Police found two 14 year olds near Palmerston North District Court.

Mr Schmidt said the boys were spoken to and their gun confiscated so it could be destroyed.

The two boys were trespassed from Downtown at the request of a security guard from the shopping mall.
