He was identified and contacted along with his mother at their home west of 48th and South.

He’s been referred to the county attorney on two counts of these four charges: injure or destroy the property of another, disturbing the peace, trespassing and unlawful discharge of a firework.

The teen told police the victims were targeted randomly and he didn’t intend to hurt anyone.
