The officer was patrolling a neighborhood Tuesday when his window shattered. The officer wasn't hurt.

He found the boy and pellet gun, then notified the boy's parents of what happened.

A Fergus Falls Journal report (http://bit.ly/j9THmj ) says police will seek restitution for the cost of the window, which will likely be between $100 and $200. The police department is also seeking a juvenile petition of delinquency through the county.
