Two 16-year-olds in Wilson County have been accused of shooting cars, including a police cruiser, with pellet guns.

Officers with Lebanon Police responded to a shots fired call on Classic View Drive sometime Monday night.

They arrived and found that someone's window had been shot out while he or she was driving down the street. A passenger in the vehicle was hit in the leg with a piece of debris or fragment but was not hurt. 

The projectiles were found to be pellets from a CO2 powered pistol and/or rifle. 

While responding to the call, a Lebanon Police Officer's patrol car was struck twice on the passenger side by pellets. 

Detectives responded to the scene and questioned two teens, their parents, and additional witnesses. 

Other vehicles nearby have been identified as having the same pellet-type damage, possibly taking place over the last couple of days. Three pellet guns were recovered.

Multiple charges were pending in the case, as the investigation remained active.
