A Butler County sheriff’s deputy from the Liberty Twp. outpost was on patrol Sunday night when he caught three juveniles who were allegedly shooting out car windows and at two schools with BB guns.
The boys, all 15, were charged with criminal damaging and released to their parents, according to Lt. Morgan Dallman.
“One of our deputies on patrol observed the boys, they each had BB guns in their possession, and after a short foot pursuit two of them were caught,” Dallman said. “Through our investigation we identified the third one.”
Dallman said the shooting spree went on Saturday night and Sunday night, and they shot 10 to 20 cars and also at Liberty Junior High and Lakota East.
D allman said the teens must appear in Butler County Juvenile Court to answer the criminal charges, and restitution could be ordered.
