Today we had reports of multiple subjects in the attached photo that were driving in the city firing BB guns.

We had reports on Moore ST and in a few other areas on the west side as well. The license plate is 944SLC and is on a 2002 Chevy Trailblazer EXT.

At 1259pm one subject from this vehicle shot a man who was out mowing his yard in the 1400 block of Moore St causing non-life threatening injuries.

A short time later the vehicle was spotted on Shirland Av and as we attempted to stop the vehicle most of the occupants fled on foot. One juvenile suspect was arrested for Resisting/Obstructing an officer (for fleeing on foot), and for a felony Battery charge as the victim of the BB gun shooting was over age 62.

We are still seeking any information as to who the other occupants of the vehicle were, or if you have video that would cover Moore St, we would ask for you to check your video to see if you have this vehicle on camera.

If you spot this vehicle and it is occupied, please call 911. You can refer to case number BE1841619. If it is unoccupied, please call 757-2244.
