TYLER, Texas (AP) — Three teenagers have been charged with aggravated assault in the dart-gun shootings of two women in an East Texas department store parking lot.

The shootings happened in a Walmart lot in Tyler about 8:50 p.m. Monday. A Tyler police statement Tuesday says the women were in different parts of the lot and were hit with darts fired from a car — one in the leg, one in the arm.

Witnesses followed the suspect vehicle until officers stopped it in a Dairy Queen parking lot.

Charged and booked into the Smith County Jail in Tyler were 18-year-old Matthew Allen Arnold and 17-year-old Kasey Dewayne McClendon, who were released on $60,000 bond, and 17-year-old Gregory Alan Smith, who was released on $40,000 bond.

Jail records did not list attorneys for the three.
