CINCINNATI, Ohio — Two sisters accused of using a BB gun to randomly shoot at homeless people have turned themselves into police.

Brittany Hopper, 29, and Kelsey Hopper, 28, surrendered to police Tuesday afternoon. Each sister faces three counts of assault in what police have called an “incredibly senseless crime.”

A third suspect is now being sought. An arrest warrant has been issued for David White, 30, in connection with six incidents involving people in Cincinnati being shot with a BB gun, police say.

According to WCPO Channel 9, police say the three suspects drove around the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati last Thursday and used a BB gun to shoot at homeless people, some of whom were sleeping. Two people suffered minor injuries.

Surveillance video recorded some of the incidents, WLWT Channel 5 reports.

The vehicle used in the shootings was found Monday in Covington, Kentucky, which is just south of Cincinnati, police say. The vehicle had been spray-painted in an attempt to hide it from authorities, police say.
