According to a posting on the Franklin School Listserve, a landscaper was shot by a BB while working in a yard on Sheridan Street. The post says:

On Saturday Afternoon 4/7/2012 we had landscapers […] cleaning the front of our house [on Sheridan Street].  At around 3:30 pm one of his workers was shot with a BB gun in the back.  This pellet penetrated so deep that he will require surgery to remove it.  The Newton Police are investigating.


Based on where the man was standing when he got shot – the shot had to have come from Cleveland/Smith Ave area.

Anyone with information is asked to call Newton Police.
