JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro police are investigating at least four incidents in the past few days where vehicle windows were shot out with BB guns.

Three of the incidents happened on Industrial Drive early Saturday while the fourth incident happened Sunday on Edgewood Lane at a house.

Officials said Monday that one of the incidents involved a UPS truck.

According to the report on the UPS truck, the driver told police that he was pulling into UPS around 2:50 a.m. Saturday to unload his trailer when the cab on his semi-truck was shot at. 

About an hour earlier, police got a call about a vehicle being hit by a BB at the intersection of East Nettleton Avenue/U.S. 63/Industrial Drive. The victim told police that someone shot at his vehicle and hit the rear driver's side window. From there, the man said he made a left turn, went over the nearby tracks and noticed that someone continued shooting at him. 

A few minutes earlier, police also got a call from a woman, who said someone had shot at her vehicle and left a hole in the driver's side door. 

As she continued driving on Industrial Drive, she said someone began shooting at her vehicle. 

As for the Edgewood Lane report, a man told police that someone shot out the front windshield of his truck with a BB gun. The man also told police that someone had shot out the window in his car Friday.

Authorities were unsure if any of the shootings are connected.

Anyone with information can call Crimestoppers at 935-STOP.
