OJAI — An Ojai boy was arrested and his friend was issued a citation for allegedly shooting a bicyclist in the elbow with a BB gun Saturday afternoon, authorities said.

The incident, the third in three months in the area, occurred around 4:30 p.m. in the 200 block of Aliso Street, authorities said. The victim, who was not identified, was treated at Ojai Valley Hospital.

The one boy was booked into Juvenile Hall because he was on probation at the time, authorities said. It is illegal to fire a BB gun in the city.

On July 15, an 11-year-old Ojai Valley boy was treated for a minor flesh wound on his arm after his friend accidentally shot him with a BB gun while the two were playing. No charges were filed.

And 1-year-old Nancy Gomez was accidentally shot July 1 by her 8-year-old brother, who had been firing at avocados in the family's frontyard in Ojai. She died two days later at a Santa Barbara hospital.
