LOWELL — Police say two juveniles were cited into family court after a number of motorists reported having their windows shot out with a bb gun while driving in Lowell.
On Saturday, the Vermont State Police received a complaint where the victim stated she believed her truck was struck by a bullet or rock while she was driving on Vermont Route 100, near Irish Hill Road.
Troopers responded to the area and while investigating, three other callers came forward saying their vehicles had been struck with something in the same area.
Two of the vehicles were examined and it was determined the damage was caused by a bb or a pellet.
“A total of two of the vehicles had their rear side window shot out,” a statement issued by Trooper Mikkola reads.
Mikkola went on to say that the investigation later revealed two juveniles were shooting cans in the dark with a bb gun on their property.
The shooting area and the target cans were observed by the trooper and located beyond the cans was Route 100.
Both juveniles were cited into family court for unlawful mischief and reckless endangerment.
