    • It says what both of them are being charged with but it says they arrested 3 suspects. Also how would a bb or pellet fracture a skull? Sounds a little far fetched.

      • Yes Leo, a baby’s skull is still very soft. So a bb pellet could penetrate the skull , and very easily cause severe fractures.
