Meanwhile, in New Hampshire

Jesse Deflorio faces one count of reckless conduct after he was accused of firing a BB gun in the direction of Concord police officers who were doing a routine traffic stop earlier this month.

Police said that on Sept. 5, two officers stopped a car near the intersection of Water and South Main streets in Concord.

During that stop, the officers said, they heard what sounded like shots being fired, but they were able to determine the gun was most likely a BB gun and not a traditional firearm.

The officers and the occupants of the vehicle were unharmed.

The officers said they heard projectiles striking a dumpster in the area and believed the shots were coming from a nearby apartment building.

Police said they located Deflorio and two other men at an apartment at 203 South Main St. On Tuesday, police filed charges against Deflorio.

He appeared in court Wednesday morning on the reckless conduct charge.

Prosecutors said he was arrested a year ago on a similar charge of shooting a BB gun at a random person who was driving along Loudon Road in Concord.

Prosecutors said he pleaded guilty to reckless conduct last September and is on probation for that incident.

It also didn't appear to go to Grand Jury. 2nd time. I guess he likes shooting anywhere.

They did not shoot the kid. Wonder why they shoot SOME kids who have BB guns and don't shoot in the presense of Law Enforcement, but they shoot others within 2 seconds of pulling up. Do you have any idea what was different between this kid and Tamir who was shot at the park by a police officer last week? I mean, Tamir didn't even shoot at the cop and this kid did. Strange that Tamir was shot and killed and this kid was merely arrested.

But Tamir was a black child so.......

New Hampshire police may be more respectful to everyone. Obviously I don't know one way or the other, but maybe they have stricter guidelines on becoming cops......like not be racist.

I guess in some places it's perfectly ok to shoot children. Just not in New Hampshire. Certain places seen to have issues with that.
