Seven vehicles in Aberdeen damaged in a week by BB gun, handgun

Aberdeen Police are asking for the public’s help after seven vehicles were vandalized with some type of gun in the city.

Beginning March 18 over a period of seven days, five vehicles were damaged with BB gun projectiles and two were damaged with small-caliber handgun fire, Aberdeen Police Department Lt. Will Reiber said.

“Obviously there is a risk to public safety when someone is discharging a weapon,” Reiber said.

He pointed out there have been several incidents across the country recently in which weapons such as BB guns have been perceived as real weapons and police have responded.

“And that’s a real danger,” Reiber said.
