Sometime between 10:30 Wednesday night and 6:00 Thursday morning, someone shot out at least 13 windows in downtown Bishop. Police Chief Kathleen Sheehan reports that most of the windows were shot out with a BB gun, but one larger pea sized projectile indicates a wrist rocket type slingshot might have been used as well.
Crews could be seen at many businesses in Bishop working to replace the broken windows.
13 windows between the south end of Main Street at Steves Auto and JC Penny, to the Mountain Light Gallery and Culvers Sporting Goods and farther north on Main Street at Washington Mutual and Burger king had been hit. Chief Sheehan says that the damage could top $15,000, well into the range of felony vandalism.
Right now there are no suspects, but Police are reviewing surveillance videos from local businesses. Police ask that residents be vigilant. With Halloween tomorrow, Chief Sheehan says that the perpetrators might think this is funny, but she adds that it might not be that funny when they get the felony charge.
