TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Authorities say two teenagers have been arrested in connection with the shootings of eight vehicles, including six Wal-Mart trucks, on a highway in northeast Oklahoma.
The Tulsa World (http://bit.ly/2180cfa ) reports the two were arrested Tuesday. A statement from the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office says the teens were questioned and arrested after a man told authorities his son and a friend had been out hunting during the time some shots were reported.
Since Sunday night, drivers had reported hearing something hit their vehicles as they drove along a stretch of U.S. 75 north of Tulsa and east of Skiatook. No one was injured.
Police said the trucks were shot in both the trailer and cab areas.
The teens were arrested on eight complaints of assault with a deadly weapon and eight counts of reckless handling of a firearm.
