Teens accused of shooting deputy's car, others with pellet gun

PLEASANT HILL, Ore. - Two teens face accusations they shot a pellet gun at passing cars Saturday night - including the first sheriff's patrol car to arrive on scene.

The two youths - a 14-year-old from Pleasant Hill and a 15-year-old from Coburg - were cited and released to their parents. The Lane County Sheriff's Office said the two face multiple counts of reckless endangering and criminal mischief.

The sheriff's office got a report of projectiles hitting cars on Cloverdale Road just after 8:20 p.m. Saturday. When the first deputy responded to the scene, his vehicle was also struck by a pellet, the sheriff's office said.

Three motorists reported damage to their vehicles, including a rear side window of a car with two small children seated in the backseat.

No injuries or traffic accidents were reporting in connection to the incident.
