MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Police in Manchester, New Hampshire, are still trying to determine who shot two girls with a BB gun.

Police said the shooter will likely face assault and reckless conduct charges.

A 14-year-old girl was struck in the face and a 13-year-old struck in the leg as they walked home from middle school on Thursday.

The girls are expected to be OK. WMUR-TV reports that they were able to give a description of the car from which the gun was fired.

Nate Sweeney, the father of the girl who was hit in the face, said BB guns are not toys. He said “guns are guns.”
