AUSTINTOWN -- Police say two Burkey Road teens used a pellet gun to shoot out a window of a South Raccoon Road sandwich shop.
Police were called around 3:15 p.m. by someone saying three teens, one with a gun in his waistband, got into a blue Chevrolet Cavalier after leaving the Subway store. Officers said they found the gun and two marijuana pipes in the car.
Police also were told by a man that a similar car was near the Main Moon restaurant on South Raccoon about 3 p.m., when that restaurant's glass door was shattered.
An 18-year-old faces charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and complicity to commit criminal damage. A 17-year-old will be charged as a juvenile with criminal damage. The third teen was not arrested.
Procedures in effectfor new school facilities
LIBERTY -- New procedures governing use of school district facilities have gone into effect.
"The board and administration are committed to the continued use of school facilities by community members. At the same time, it's in the district's best interest to avoid the potential for exposure to liability claims," Superintendent Lawrence Prince said.
Groups and clubs that are not sponsored by the board are required to complete the district's reservation request and sign an agreement providing that the sponsoring organization is financially responsible for all damage to the facility and must have proof of liability insurance equal to that carried by the board.
Groups and clubs that have an affiliation with school programs like parent-teacher organizations and boosters and mothers clubs may be eligible to obtain an attachment to the district's liability policy.
Organizations like Little League and scouting are not eligible.
