HOUSTON – Authorities are searching for the vandals who went on a shooting spree, damaging more than 20 vehicles in the Woodland Heights neighborhood, northwest of downtown, overnight.
Residents first reported the vandalism late Sunday night via social media. According to Twitter user @HoustonHeights, most of the vehicles shot up were on Euclid St, Bayland Ave, Woodland St, Reagan St, and Florence St.
Witnesses said the shootings happened around 10 p.m. One man said the suspects appeared to be teens in a white truck with a black camper on top. They shot up cars and at least one home.
The damages are causing major headaches and heartbreaks for the victims.
“It’s not happy days are here again. You know, it’s like it’s kind of a strain on me financially and I’m supposed to be at the office for our Christmas luncheon; I’m supposed to be there,” said Vivian Mikulski.
Another victim shares Mikulski’s concern about the added expense for repairs.
“I’d say wait until you have to pay for something and you’ll think a lot differently about what you do,” said Chris Brewer.
Police said it is possible that a BB gun was used in the shootings. No one was injured.
