Windows shot out of vehicles in Stillwater, Hudson, other cities along Minnesota-Wisconsin border

Police say the BB gun shooting spree happened over the weekend.

Vehicles parked in multiple cities on the Minnesota-Wisconsin border had their windows and mirrors shot out last weekend.

Hudson, Wisconsin's Chief of Police Geoff Willems tells BMTN that they've received about 20 reports of windows and mirrors being shot out of vehicles by a BB gun Sunday night into the early morning hours of Monday. 

Willems said similar acts of vandalism happened in Stillwater, Oak Park Heights and Lakeland, and a sergeant from Stillwater Police Department told KARE 11 that there were at least 45 reports of vehicles with broken windows. 

The sergeant told KARE that they believe the same group or individual carried out the vehicle vandalism in the other cities as well. 

Hudson police provided surveillance footage from a home that shows the suspect's vehicle, which appears to be a tan or silver SUV. 

Anyone who can help identify those involved is asked to contact their local police department.
