A 16-year-old man is facing weapons charges after allegedly shooting at a vehicle in Petawawa.

The Upper Ottawa Valley OPP says it received a complaint from a driver who was being shot at with projectiles by a vehicle that had been following his.

The incident happened on Sunday evening.

Police eventually found the 16-year-old suspect carrying an air pellet pistol.

He has been charged with four counts of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, and has been released to appear in a youth court in Pembroke in July.
