Police said Tuesday they have received more than a dozen reports of shots fired from a pellet or BB gun in Hudson, Wis., during a several-hour span, and authorities say they could be connected to similar incidents on the Minnesota side of the border.
The shootings, at least 15 incidents, were reported between 6 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday, said police. Damage was reported to windows and side-view mirrors.
Home surveillance video captured a silver or gray SUV, possibly with aftermarket rims, driving slowly past vehicles as the accompanying audio revealed “a loud ping consistent with a pellet or BB striking glass,” a statement from police read.
In addition, Hudson police added, they’re checking on a report of people getting out of a dark SUV with a white top and pumping a pellet gun, only to be scared off by a resident.
Hudson police say the incidents may be connected to similar activity in Stillwater and Oak Park Heights.
Anyone with information should call Hudson police at 1-715-386-4771 or the St. Croix County (Wis.) Sheriff’s Office at 1-715-386-4701.
