Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested two adults and two juveniles Sunday after they shot BB/Pellet guns at a home and vehicle, causing an estimated $1,500 in damage.

On Sunday evening around 6, Deputy Jessica Baken responded to a report of a victim’s home and vehicle being shot at by a passing vehicle.

On the way to the residence, located in the 11400 block of N. Parksmith Drive, Deputy Baken saw a vehicle that matched the suspected vehicle description parked in a parking lot at 4th and Market in Mead. The two males in the vehicle watched the deputy and then left.

At the residence, Deputy Baken saw a small hole in the living room window, two holes in the rear shattered window of the truck parked in front of the residence, and one shot to the windshield.

The deputy confirmed with the victim that the car she had spotted in the parking lot was the same vehicle the victim had seen.

As the deputy was searching for the suspects, the victim called and said their home had been shot at again.

The deputy found the suspect vehicle in the area of Market and 2nd. The vehicle did not have license plates. This time, the deputy saw four subjects in the car, and called for backup.

Deputies detained the three males and one female in the car.

Both deputies observed multiple realistic-looking pistols and a rifle inside the vehicle, along with BB/Pellets and CO2 cartridges throughout the vehicle.

18-year-old Tristan P. Hilton and 18-year-old Roshena S. Andrews, and two juvenile males were arrested for second degree malicious mischief and criminal conspiracy, both felonies.

The vehicle was seized and a search warrant executed, which revealed four BB/Pellet pistols, and one BB/Pellet rifle. A receipt showed the BB/Pellet guns were purchased just before the incident.

Deputies were told the suspects “thought” a female in another vehicle who called them names earlier in the evening was related to a person who lived at the victim’s residence. They drove to a store, purchased the BB/Pellet guns and drove to the Parksmith residence firing as they drove past.
