A Butler County man is accused of convincing a teenage boy to fire a BB gun into a Jefferson Township home.
Austin Ayers, 19, of Connoquenessing is now facing several charges, including a felony charge of conspiracy to commit the crimes and reckless endangerment.
According to State Police, Ayers gave the gun to a 17-year-old boy and instructed him to shoot at a house on Neupert Road on Friday night.
The teen did it- shooting the house that had four people inside, including two young children. No one was hurt.
On Saturday, police went to Ayers’ house and arrested him. He also was found with a Taser- which is illegal in Pennsylvania- and is now facing additional charges.
Ayers’ motive is unclear.
