Just like the idiot who drove the car into the school in Hobart, these guys will start bragging about what they've done and will be caught. Give it some time and they will implicate themselves. Most criminals are pretty stupid.

I'm sure when caught, we will hear about how these kids are honor students and a criminal record will destroy any bright future they have.

Over what time period have these shootings occurred? Is there a pattern as to an area in which the shootings have occurred?
What is the basis for which the shootings are reported to be pellets or BBs and not bullets?
Have any shootings occurred in which there are occupants in or near a car, by which they would be endangered?

It'd be so nice if the Star would do some basic reporting instead of putting up text bites for stories.

Lets look at it from a different point.
Did the owners of these vehicles do everything in there power to prevent this?
Example - how many of these owners have a garage and either were just to lazy to park their car in it or it is packed with junk and can't be used for its intended purpose. Thus their windows wouldn't have been damaged. Just a thought.
I am not trying to justify what shooters did and if they are found, I think their victems should be allowed to shoot out the windows of their cars or their parents cars/house. If they are underage I would sue the parents!!!!!!!!!!

"LaPorte Chief of Detectives Clyde Crass says investigators were mapping out where and when each vehicle was shot at early Thursday."

That line from the text answers your questions.

The next time a crime happens to you, we should all blame you and not the criminal, right?

The local paper ( heraldargus.com ) doesn't have anything further. What more could the Star offer?

Haha. I love how everyone is a cynic and/or is 'able' to predict the future about EVERYTHING or knows everything already. I'm only 20 years old & turn 21 in May, but I'm smart enough to know that something like this isn't only feasible for teenagers to do.

Why do you need to know? Do you plan to try to catch these guys?

Sorry, Carl. Maybe they should send a couple of investigative reporters to the scenes of the crimes. Maybe call in a CSI team to do some analysis. I'm sure the Star is VERY concerned about the thoroughness of a story about car windows being broken 150 miles away.

Am I wrong? Am I wrong? Who do you think is committing all these crimes? I am not.. Are you committing these crimes? I didn't think so.. It is the mexicans... Think about all those mexican restaurants up there... La Colima, La Hacienda, they are nothing but fronts for these mexican mafias...
