LATAH COUNTY, ID - Sheriff's deputies have two teenagers in custody accused of shooting at more than 20 cars and trucks.

The shootings happened Friday near the intersection of Forks Road and Highway 8, about 30 miles east of Moscow near the town of Deary.

About 1 p.m. the Latah County Sheriff's Office got reports of cars and trucks being shot at. Nobody was hurt.

The road was closed for about an hour.

On Saturday afternoon the two 14-year-olds were arrested after their friends started talking.

"We just started in the area ... we had some help from kids who lived in the area, they heard about it, were texting, it just spread like wildfire," said Lieutenant Brannon Jordan with the Latah County Sheriff's Office.

Sheriff's deputies say both teenagers are Latah County residents. They've been charged with discharging a firearm illegally. Deputies are not releasing any more information because the suspects are underage.

The shots hit mostly semi trucks so the Sheriff's Office says it won't know how many got hit until they get inspected at the end of the night.
