Police say a suspect with a BB gun rolled up to a group of Austin, Minnesota teens near a school Monday night before uttering,"Who's going to run first?" counting down from five, then firing the weapon at the group, according to KTTC.

One of the teens was struck in the head, and authorities are searching for the suspect.

The Austin Daily Herald reports the unidentified 17-year-old victim told police he was sitting with friends on a bench outside Sumner Elementary when the suspect crept by in a tan Buick, eventually stopping.
