A 13-year-old male was arrested Tuesday around 5 p.m. and charged with unlawful discharge of a firearm, criminal mischief and reckless endangerment.
The teenager allegedly fired a BB gun at a school bus filled with students that was heading west on Fairfield Beach Road Tuesday afternoon. A metal pellet reportedly lodged inside the driver-side window.
While police were investigating that incident, the teenager reportedly shot another car traveling down the road. The driver of that car stopped, returned to the spot and was pelted again, police said.
The driver could tell where the BBs were coming from, police said, and knocked on the front door of that house. The juvenile reportedly answered the door with his gun in hand. The driver complained to the boy's parents, and then to police.
The juvenile was released on a promise to appear in court on March 16.
Matthew Barton, 18, of 144 Black Rock Ave., was arrested Monday at 8:30 p.m. and charged with possession of marijuana.

The officer thumbed through the wallet, looking for identification, police said, and found three grams of marijuana tucked inside.
Shortly thereafter, Barton returned to the parking lot in search of the wallet. Asked if there was anything in there that shouldn't be, he reportedly told police about the marijuana.
He was released on a promise to appear in court on March 10.
