Police are investigating after BB's are fired at two teens walking on Santa Fe.
Salina Police are asking for help in locating a Jeep Grand Cherokee that is described as brown or gray, with a black roof rack.
A witness told officers that the Jeep was southbound in the 1300 block of Santa Fe Monday morning at 10am - when two male passengers fired BB's from black handguns.
The teens were not hit and there was no damage to property near the former House of Sight and Sound.
The witness described the driver and two passengers as white males in their late teens or early twenties.
Police do believe the incident could be connected to a string of car windows that have been shattered by BB's over the weekend into Monday.
According to Deputy Police Chief Carson Mansfield, three more vehicles had windows shot out between Sunday and Monday.
Two Ford Focuses had auto glass shot out in the 500 block of Sunset - causing over $1,000 of damage, while the owner of a 2004 Pontiac Grand AM reported windows shot out and an estimated $700 in damage done in the 700 block of Osage.
Over the weekend, 3 vehicles parked in the 800 block of Hancock, 800 block of S. Ohio and 100 block of S. College were all sprayed by BB's.
