Calvert man charged with shooting teen

By Washington Post editors

A Maryland man is charged with shooting a 15-year-old boy from Pennsylvania with a shotgun after the teen hit him with a paintball.

Sgt. Michael Holmes of the Cecil County Sheriff's Office says 19-year-old Ronald Lee Mull Jr. of Calvert fired the 20-gauge shotgun at the boy Sunday night.

Holmes says Mull shot the boy in the back at close range after a heated argument. The teenager apparently had been firing the paintball gun inside the house.

The teenager from Oxford, Pa., was flown to Maryland Shock Trauma in Baltimore for treatment.

During an investigation, police found marijuana plants and two homemade pipe bombs with gunpowder and nails in the house. Police say charges are pending on those offenses.

Mull is charged with first- and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment.
