A 17-year-old boy is facing weapons and mischief charges after a number of vehicles had their windows shot out in Winnipeg's Elmwood area.

Just before 2 a.m. Sunday, ground officers and the police helicopter were called to the neighbourhood in response to five parked vehicles being struck with the shots.

The cars were found with their windows shot out.   A few minutes later, the Air 1 helicopter located the suspect vehicle on the Redwood Bridge. Ground units were notified and the vehicle was stopped.

Four people were taken into custody but only the 17-year-old is facing charges.
