DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — A Dothan man has been arrested after police say he shot a school bus and other vehicles with a BB gun.
At around 3 p.m. on Thursday, Dothan Police say they got a call about a Dothan City school bus being shot into while driving near Fortner Street and South Park Avenue. There were children on the bus at the time, however, there were no injuries, according to police.
While officers were responding to the school bus shooting, two other victims called reporting their vehicles had been shot into while traveling in the same area.
Police found that the replica guns were fired by someone in the front yard of a home on the 900 Block of Fortner Street. After police arrested everyone inside, police say they found three weapons.
One of the replica guns is believed to have been used to shoot at the school bus and other vehicles. After an investigation, all three weapons were determined to be compressed-air powered BB guns. All of them were replicas of real guns.
As a result, 20-year-old Jacquette Daquin Townsend, of Dothan, was charged with three counts of throwing or shooting deadly or dangerous missiles into an occupied vehicle.
Townsend’s bond is set $45,000.
