Four teenagers charged in BB gun shootings

LAWRENCEVILLE - Teenagers allegedly involved in the BB gun shootings of SUVs in the Grayson, Loganville and Snellville areas have been charged with criminal damage and making terroristic threats and acts.

Christopher N. Logsdon, 17, of Lawrenceville and Zachary Lambert Davidson, 17, of Snellville, were charged with criminal damage "by shooting the rear window with a BB gun," of three vehicles, a 2002 Chevy Tahoe, a 2001 Chrysler Town and Country and a 2005 Dodge Caravan, according to the arrest warrants.

In addition to the criminal damage charges involving the three SUVs, James Ansley Brownlee, 17, of Loganville was also charged with making terroristic threats and acts at Ozora Road in Loganville.

Brownlee is accused of "shooting at the vehicle with a BB gun while it was operating on the roadway from the cover of the woods on the side of the road causing the front passenger window to explode," the warrant said.

A fourth teenager, a 16-year-old from Loganville, was arrested last week and released to his parents, said Cpl. Darren Moloney, Gwinnett County Police Department spokesman. Police are not releasing the teen's name due to his age, and details on his charges were not available.

Police found the four teens when one of them called police to report they were being chased into the woods by someone driving an unknown vehicle. Police confirmed the teens' location and by calling the cell phone they used to call police, talked with the boys and convinced them to surrender.

Residents started calling police early April 18 about damage to vehicles and houses from BB gun shots.
