NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

North Charleston police say one man was arrested Monday after refusing to give officers information regarding four kids who claimed someone at the suspect's home shot at them with a BB gun.

According to an incident report, the assault took place in the 2600 block of Madden Drive on Monday around 10:30 p.m.

The four kids told police they were walking down the road when a group of people sitting on a front porch started shooting at them with a BB gun. Officers were not able to find any injuries or markings on the kids, the report states.

The kids said they could not identify who shot at them because it was dark.

Officers say they went to the home where the shooting occurred and spoke with 26-year-old Fernando Johnson, who confirmed his brother's friends were on the front porch shooting the BB gun, but not at people. He also said he was not shooting the gun.

Police say Johnson refused to give them information about the friends who were shooting the BB gun.

The report states Johnson was wanted on a bench warrant for contempt of court in Charleston County. Officers arrested Johnson and found 12 BB's in his pocket. He did not say why he had the BB's. 

Johnson was also charged with hindering a police investigation, and taken to the Charleston County Detention Center.
