Charges may be forthcoming against five individuals police believe are responsible for a rash of recent drive-by BB and paintball gun shootings in Oswego and Plainfield — the latest taking place Wednesday night.

According to Cathy Nevara, Oswego Police media relations officer, Oswego Police were contacted late Wednesday by Plainfield Police about five individuals they took into custody regarding similar incidents in Plainfield. Oswego police officers traveled to Plainfield and interviewed the suspects at about 1 a.m. Thursday, Nevara said. 

The Kendall County State's Attorney's Office is currently reviewing charges against the suspects, Nevara said. Oswego Police did not release the identity of the suspects, and Plainfield Police Sgt. Mike Fisher also could not release their identities as of 10:15 a.m. Thursday.

Nevara said the suspects are believed to be responsible for shooting out several car windows and the window of a home Saturday night. The incidents continued Wednesday night with more windows shot out with pellets. Blue paintballs were also used, police said. In two incidents, children were hit with pellets and paintballs, leaving visible injuries, police said.

Police said Wednesday night's incidents occurred on Heritage Drive and Redding Court, and Saturday night's occurred in the Prescott Mill and Ogden Falls neighborhoods.
