Channel 11's Amy Hudak drove up and down Zephyr Avenue and Hammond and Begman streets. Home after home was splattered with white and yellow paint. Many of the homes, some vacant and others not, had windows shot out or shattered.
But for these neighbors, it's about more than their property; it's about their family's safety. The neighborhood is full of kids and pets, and that's why neighbors have gotten the police involved.
As fed up as neighbors are, they said they also fear for the safety of the teens shooting the paintball guns, saying someone can mistake them for real guns.
