MT. HEALTHY, OH (FOX19) - A 14-year-old boy is recovering in Mt. Healthy after he was shot in the eye with a BB gun on Friday night.

Isaac McKinney said he was walking the family dog at about 11 p.m. on Friday, May 26 when a car driving past started firing BB's in his direction.

"It happened so quick so I couldn't even make like any adjustment," McKinney recalled.

McKinney is still dealing with blurry vision and has seen multiple doctors since the incident occurred. Those doctors were able to remove the pellet, but the soon-to-be 9th grader's recovery could take weeks.

"They said it's like a very serious injury," McKinney said. "They said it's like a big scratch in my eye that's going to take a minute to heal."

The aspiring musician and athlete added that he is just trying to move past it all and look forward to what is next.

Mt. Healthy Police said they are looking into a possible connection between McKinney's incident and two other reports filed recently involving drive-by BB gun shootings.

One of those reports was filed in Mt. Healthy and the other was filed with the North College Hill Police Department.

As police search for information, they said a black or gray Chevy is believed to be involved in the incident.
