In one case, a young boy was hit with a BB pellet that broke his skin as he walked home from school. Another man reported being hit in the leg.

A family vehicle was also damaged in the shootings, according to Varren Parker. The dents and dings alone would cost about $2,000 to repair, Parker says.

"I am proud of the dedication our detectives showed in this case," said Sheriff Troy E. Nehls. "BB guns may be just a toy to some, but when used the way these two young men did, well, they are seeing firsthand how seriously we take attacks against Fort Bend County residents."

Authorities say the investigation is ongoing.
