Police are looking for the public's help to identify the person who has shot at and struck at least two occupied vehicles with BB pellets.

The incidents occurred between 2:50 and 3:00 Sunday afternoon in Port Clinton, Schuylkill Co., when a person shot BB pellets from a hillside off Broad Street, near the railroad tracks, in the borough, state police said.

The front passenger's side window of a minivan, belonging to a Springfield couple, was shattered first; then, the right rear quarter panel of a pickup truck, belonging to a man from Breinigsville, Lehigh Co., was damaged, police said.


No one was injured in either incident.

State police are asking anyone with information about the case to call the Schuylkill Haven barracks at 570-593-2000 or 866-295-4721.
