TULSA, Okla. – Two Oklahoma teenagers have been arrested following a shooting spree along a highway.

Investigators say the shootings began Sunday night along U.S. 75, just north of Tulsa.

In all, eight vehicles, including six Walmart trucks, were shot as they drove between 106th St. North and 156th St. North.

Justin Green, with the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office, said the trucks had bullet holes in the trailer and the cab areas.

Fortunately, no injuries were reported.

The Tulsa World reports that deputies met with a man who said his teenage son and a friend had been hunting in the area during the time the shootings occurred.

“Detectives detained both juveniles for questioning, and the parents cooperated. Both juveniles confessed to shooting at tractor-trailers traveling on 75 on both nights,” a news release from the sheriff’s office said.

Both juveniles were arrested on eight complaints of assault with a deadly weapon and eight counts of reckless handling of a firearm.
