Two Ohio women were arrested on Tuesday for allegedly shooting at least three people with a BB gun earlier this month.
Sisters Brittany and Kelsey Hopper, 29 and 28, are believed to have targeted homeless people in the BB gun attacks in Cincinnati. At least three people initially reported injuries. However, WKRC reported that a fourth victim came forward on Tuesday, the same day the suspects turned themselves in.
On Wednesday, David White, 30, was arrested in connection with six cases in Cincinnati. The Hoppers have been charged in connection with two shootings.

WLWT reported that two women and a man — presumably the Hoppers and White — drove around and shot people with a BB gun at four locations in the city.
A local restaurant owner identified himself as one of the victims to WKRC, and claimed he has a BB permanently embedded in his neck. He claimed he was shot after a vehicle stopped and asked him for directions.

Investigators reportedly said the vehicle used in the attacks was found in Covington, Kentucky. The front of the car was reportedly spray painted in an attempt to disguise it, according to WLWT.
Cincinnati police Seargent Rob Shircliff said White and the Hoppers also shot at people walking home from work. The trio allegedly approached people asking for directions before opening fire.
