SOUTH WINDSOR, CT (WFSB) -

South Windsor police arrested two men accused of shooting a pellet gun at street signs and a home early Monday morning.

At about 1 a.m., police said they received a complaint that someone had fired a pellet gun at a home in the area of Chapel and Pleasant Valley roads.

An officer responding to the area made note of a license plate on a car leaving the area, and then met with a homeowner who had dents in the siding of their home.

Police then responded to the home of the vehicle owner, who was seen leaving the area.

The driver, 22-year-old Christopher Porter, admitted that he and a 17-year-old friend were driving around shooting a pellet gun at street signs and homes, police said.

Officers arrested Porter, of East Hartford, and 18-year-old Malik McCalop, also of East Hartford.

Both men were charged with risk of injury to a minor, third-degree criminal mischief for involving a juvenile male in the criminal mischief activity.

They are expected to appear in court on Oct. 15.

The 17-year-old, who was not identified, was issued a summons to juvenile court.
