Las Vegas police said they are likely to charge three people in connection with shooting out windows on at least seven cars on the east side.

Their reason for causing the damage? For the fun of it, according to a police report.

Police said the suspects are an 18-year-old man, a 19-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy.

According to the report, the three admitted to loading two BB rifles and shooting at car windows for fun. The other two said the driver also shot out windows.

The 18-year-old was driving and would slow his truck for the other two to do the shooting, police said. The alleged activity occurred from 9-11 p.m. Monday.

They shot out windows on cars in the 1000 and 1100 blocks of Fifth Street, 1000 block of Eighth Street, 400 block of Baca Street, 400 block of Friedman Avenue, 500 block of Washington Avenue and the 1200 block of Pecos Street, police said.

Officials said they were awaiting a report from another alleged victim.

The two older suspects are likely to be charged with criminal damage and conspiracy, both fourth-degree felonies, police said.

The charges for the 16-year-old will be determined by a juvenile probation officer after officers complete their investigation, according to the police report.

District Attorney Richard Flores said in a statement this morning that his office plans to pursue the cases.
