A St. Helena Island boy was accidentally shot in the arm with a BB while playing in his yard with a friend Monday, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office report.

The 10-year-old boy's mother discovered the BB was still lodged in his right bicep. She took him to Beaufort Memorial Hospital for treatment, and the emergency room staff contacted the Sheriff's Office, the report said.
