Gardaí are investigating an alleged assault on minors in Waterford

The incident occurred in Carrickpherish last Friday at approximately 3pm. 

Two girls and a boy, all in primary school, were allegedly approached by a group of boys, who then proceeded to fire shots from a pellet gun.    

No arrests have been made and investigations are ongoing.

Local residents have hit out at the incident, saying anti-social behaviour in Carrickpherish has kids "petrified" and "afraid to go outside in case they get attacked." 

The latest incident follows the shooting of a man in area last December.
