Phoenix police said the 18-year-old man suspected in a series of incidents involving shot-out windows did not act alone.

Officials said they now know that Edwin Pacheco and four others took turns shooting a BB gun, damaging dozens of vehicles in a neighborhood near 7th Street and Bell Road.

Police said they know who the four others suspects are, but they are not releasing their names because they are minors. They were not booked into a juvenile detention center, but charges against them may be looming.

The teens may have been involved in as many as 100 cases of criminal damage, which involved approximately 120 victims, police said.

Pacheco has been released from jail.
