Teens arrested in shooting at houses


Two Westminster boys were charged Friday night after allegedly firing shots into two homes on Alymer Court in Carroll Meadows, city police said.

The boys, age 17 and 16, were shooting a .22-caliber rifle into a hillside at the rear of the older youth's house on Logan Drive near Alymer Court about 8:15 p.m., police said.

Each was charged with one count of discharging a firearm within city limits, reckless endangerment and two counts of malicious destruction of property.

Although residents were at home in each of the houses, no one was injured in the incident, police said.

Names of the boys were not released because both are juveniles.
