LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say a woman and a teenage boy have been arrested for allegedly driving around Las Cruces and firing a pellet gun toward at least two pedestrians.

Las Cruces police say 18-year-old Dana Armendariz is being held without bond at the Dona Ana County Detention Center while the teen is being held in the juvenile section of the detention center.

The Associated Press isn’t disclosing his name because he’s a juvenile.

Police say Armendariz allegedly was driving a vehicle with the teen armed with a pellet rifle as a front-seat passenger around 6 p.m. Sunday.

The boy is suspected of firing rounds at two pedestrians who weren’t struck.

One of the victims took a picture of the car’s license plate and forwarded it to police, leading to the two arrests.
