Minors charged with shooting out car windows on Route 13

August 20, 2013

The Schuyler County Sheriff's Department says two youths were issued juvenile appearance tickets and released to their parents after shooting out car windows as the cars passed on Route 13 early this afternoon.

After receiving reports of two vehicles having their windows shot out at about 1pm, Schuyler County and Tompkins County sheriff's deputies responded to Route 13 north of Alpine Junction, south of Ithaca. "Two youths were observed riding an ATV in the area," says the Schuyler County Sheriff's Department, "and when interviewed they admitted shooting at the vehicles with BB guns."

Sheriff's deputies had requested an armored vehicle and helicopter backup from the New York State Police, but the requests for these resources were cancelled after it was confirmed the minors were responsible for the shooting.
