    Police say they've arrested a boy in connection with a BB shooting in Yonkers.

    Five people were shot with BBs or pellets on the streets of Yonkers last week.

    Detective Lt. Patrick McCarthy said Monday a 15-year-old boy was arrested and charged in one of the shootings. That victim was a 57-year-old woman.

    But he says police are not sure the boy is responsible for all the attacks.

    He says more arrests are expected.

    The lieutenant says there have been no serious injuries.

    The shootings began last Tuesday.

    The boy's name has not been made public because of his age. He was to be arraigned in Family Court.
