Two Oregon teens shoot police car and other motorists with pellet gun

Two teen boys, ages 14 and 15, shot at and hit a police car and three other moving vehicles with a pellet gun, in Pleasant Hill, Oregon.  Luckily, no one was hurt or any traffic accidents.

From an article:
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.
Pellet guns aren't toys.
