A 14-year-old Madison boy was shot several times with a BB gun inside a Southwest Side apartment building Tuesday night, but he wouldn't tell police who shot him.

The shooting happened around 10 p.m. at the apartment building in the 1200 block of McKenna Boulevard, Madison police said.

The teen suffered puncture wounds to his collar bone and arm.

"Responding officers said it appeared the victim knew the suspect, but did not wish to name the person," said police spokesman Joel DeSpain.
