NEW CASSEL - ? Cops say three teens are now facing assault charges after shooting someone in the head with a BB gun.

The two victims were standing on Broadway in New Cassel on Wednesday night.

Police say Rey Alvarez, 19, and Sandy Hernandez, 16, of Westbury, along with Antelmo Silvas, 16, of the Bronx, shot the gun and fled.

Investigators say when the three teens were found, another teen, Emilia Hernandez, 19, jumped on the back of an officer to stop the arrest. One of the suspects' father is also under arrest for tampering with evidence after police say he tried to hide the BB gun.
