65-year-old Dale Farris, of Estill Springs, Tennessee fired two shots at some teens who were toilet-papering their principal's yard.
A 15-year-old boy was hit by shotgun pellets. He was struck in the right foot, inner left knee, right palm, right thigh and right side.
According to the sheriff's office, "some kids got out at a residence over there to roll it with toilet paper and this gentleman came out of his residence a couple of houses over and shot one of the teenagers. The problem is they were not on Farris' property and they were not doing anything to his property."
A check of criminal records show no prior violent incidents involving Farris. Farris has been charged with aggravated assault and reckless endangerment.
The principal whose house was targeted does not want to file charges against any of the teens.
The teenager is recovering from his wounds.
