Three juveniles arrested for hitting vehicles with bricks

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Three teenagers face charges of malicious mischief after Jackson police say they hit several cars Friday night with bricks.

 JPD Officer Colendula Green says additional charges are pending. 

Investigators believe the juveniles threw the bricks from the South McRaven Road bridge, striking several vehicles on Interstate-20.

Officer Green said the three suspects, whose ages range from 14 to 15, will be charged with eight counts of malicious mischief.

A viewer contacted WLBT Friday night, saying one of the bricks shattered part of her windshield shortly after 6 p.m. Friday.

She told us she spotted someone on the side of the interstate near the bridge. 

The viewer also claimed a dozen other cars were struck.

Green said no injuries have been reported at this point.

Police have not said whether this is connected to Jackson City Councilman Kenneth Stokes' statement last month, when he suggested throwing bricks, rocks and bottles at law enforcement officers.
