Pellet gun punks

If it’s not real shootings or stabbings, it’s nuisances caused by plain ‘ole pellet guns.

A witness oversaw a late model silver vehicle with unknown occupants at the intersection of 5th and Garden shooting an air gun at a construction site at 500 Garden. The vehicle then fled the scene. Reporting officers noticed that about 8 of the windows were indeed destroyed. I’m sure the developer can absorb the cost or have it covered by insurance, but this is just stupid.

Additionally, it’s possible that these same perps also destroyed the front window of a 2005 silver Cadillac a few blocks away on 3rd street.

It’s possible that the actor is from our town (in the 300 section of 1st street). Police are investigating now.

the windows they shot out were all pella saftey glass.
so they shattered like a windshield but didnt fall apart.
I thyink a pellet gun could do that.
it would be a damn shame if the shooters were “acidentally” shot by the cops.

[quote comment=”9460″]that’s a hell of an air rifle to knock out windows at distance…seriously I wonder if these morons appreciates the chances that they may have been JUSTIFIABLY plugged by cops with real guns….[/quote]

Perhaps they drilled out the head and converted them to hollow-pointed pellets 😯

Most powerful pellet gun I had as a kid 25 years ago was a Crossman 2200 magnum with knickel plated metal. It had a shooting range of about 600 feet per second. That’s definately enough to pop the windows the punks broke.

But I grew up in Texas and only used sun dried Budweisser cans as targets (I’d aim for the “e”). No condo developments there. I’m thinking since the perps targeted new condos, perhaps they have some animosity against people who could buy those.

Hmm, pretty close to Archstone’s 77 Park Ave aparments…

Newton’s Third Law, as applied to social dynamics, compels the First Law to act against the Third Law through the Second Law until the situation nullifies itself by neutralizing the causality of the Third Law.

The developer didn’t pay up — this is only the beginning.
