WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

A destructive trend happening around the country where people drive around neighborhoods and attack others with paintballs has landed four Wichita falls men behind bars. Now, one victim speaks out about her home being hit.

Petra Guzman was with her kids at her home that had lost power at the time, when they heard unusual popping noises outside.

Guzman recalls, “It was around the storm and that's why we had the door open letting the breeze come in. My daughter said, ‘Something just fell on the porch’ because it sounded kind of loud."

Someone had driven by her house and shot multiple paintballs at her door, a window, the front porch, and the side of her house.

“I counted about 9 shots that were hit on the house. It was just crazy. I mean with the door open, if they had hit the kids sitting on the couch or something like that – I was thinking all the worst things”, she said.

Guzman was left to clean up the mess that the paintball shooters left behind, but she is just happy that none of her children were hurt. She said, “I mean kids are going to be kids nowadays, but I mean to be out here just trying to cause damage or hurt someone on purpose? It's not right.

Police caught the suspects in the 1200 block of Kenley Avenue just after 8:30 p.m. Thursday night.

Officials say more than a dozen people were injured over the two days.

A paintball gun with orange paintballs was found inside the suspect vehicle. 

Rupert Ayala, 21, Justin Harmon, 20, Joseph Leija, 24, and Jesse Olvera, 20, were all arrested and booked into the Wichita Co. Jail for six counts of assault.
