NEW YORK (AP) — A New York police officer who was hit in the neck by a BB-gun pellet on a Brooklyn street Saturday was recovering from a minor injury after treatment at a hospital.

Police say the officer was struck late Saturday afternoon as he responded to a report that a civilian was struck by a BB in the borough’s Brownsville section.

Police said they did not know whether other individuals were struck, but the Daily News reported that several others were struck and a car’s window was shattered by the pellets.

Police said nobody had been apprehended by late Saturday, but an investigation was continuing.
