MBTA Transit Police have determined that someone fired a pellet gun Friday night at Red Line trains passing through Dorchester, an MBTA spokesman said.
Service was interrupted for about a half-hour while police responded. Investigators believe the shots came from Von Hillern Street in Dorchester, an area near where the trains enter a tunnel.
Although the windows were cracked, none of the pellets penetrated the cars, Pesaturo said. No one was injured, he said. Authorities asked anyone with information about the incident to call Transit Police detectives at 617-222-1050.
