A Sedalia teenager was transported to a Columbia hospital Sunday after being shot twice with a pellet gun.

According to the Pettis County Sheriff’s Office, shortly after 5 p.m. Sunday deputies were called to the 4200 block of West Main Street, just outside the city limits, on a report of a person with gunshot wounds.

A 15-year-old white male sustained two small-caliber wounds, one to his arm and another to his abdomen, which preliminary investigation revealed were caused by a pellet gun.
