Update: Longview Police investigating more than 80 bb gun car shootings

More than 60 BB Gun car shootings in Longview

LONGVIEW - Longview Police are looking for the person or people responsible for shooting out windows of more than 60 vehicles.

Police say they used bb guns to vandalize vehicles throughout the city and most of the incidents happened early this morning.

Many auto body shops tell us they are seeing a rise in customers because of the shootings. A shop owner tells us he even had to contact his glass company to order more supplies.

"Just this evening i've had to buy $26,000 worth of glass to fill orders," Gabrel Formoso says. "It's sad to see so many people frustrated and not expecting this."

A few of the car victims also reported eggs thrown at their cars. Also, some Kilgore residents are reporting their cars with broken windows.  

Longview Police are asking for your help to find those responsible for these crimes. If you have any information or surveillance video, call Longview Police or Crime Stoppers at 903-236-7867.
