The Chatham County Sheriff's Office said Friday it has charged a 15-year-old with shooting at three vehicles on US 15-501.

It happened Monday evening in the area of US 15-501 North and Hamlet's Chapel Church Road, North of Pittsboro.  

Deputies said all three vehicles were headed north on the road when it happened. Damage included penetration holes in the side panels and broken window glass.  No one was hurt.

Investigators said they got a tip that a teen was seen in the area with a pellet gun and went to the boy's home. A CO2 gas-powered pellet rifle was recovered and the boy arrested.

As he's a juvenile, he has not been named.
