Two 18-year-old males were arrested Tuesday evening, accused of shooting seven people over the last day with BB guns in southwest Arlington.
Nicholas Coffman and Jaime Griffin face charges of assault causing bodily injury. None of the victims suffered life-threatening injuries, said Lt. Chris Cook, police spokesman.
Reports of the drive-by shootings began about 6 p.m. Monday, when a group of joggers told police they were shot by BB guns near Kelly Elliott Road and Southwest Green Oaks Boulevard, Cook said.
Near the same area Tuesday evening, a woman was shot three times in the back with a BB gun as she walked out of a church. The woman went to a hospital, where she was being treated for her injuries Tuesday night.
Never miss a local story.
About same time the woman was shot, Cook said, another shooting involving BB guns was reported near the Cliff Nelson Recreation Center in the 4600 block of West Bardin Road.
A short time later, a group of bicyclists flagged down an Arlington police officer to report another BB gun shooting.
In each of the shootings, the suspects were driving a dark green Honda sedan, Cook said. Police saw a matching vehicle in the 4400 block of West Sublett Road about 7:30 p.m. and made two arrests, recovering two BB guns and a Taser gun.
Two other people were also in the car but were not taken into custody, Cook said.
Griffin already posted bond while Coffman remains in the Arlington Jail with bond set at $1,000, Cook said.
