Authorities want to know who is shooting out windows in Ormond Beach.

Police on Wednesday said they've received complaints from 38 victims who've found that their windows have been cracked or shattered by a BB gun or similar weapon.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports the shootings began in November and have included businesses, residences in various neighborhoods and vehicles.

"You can drive along Granada Boulevard and see some businesses that have sheets of wood on their windows," said Ormond Beach police Lt. Jesse Godfrey.

One of the latest targets is Rod's Carpet Tile and Wood. Owner Rod Gammon said he spent much of last Sunday boarding up his windows. It's the second time they've shot out his windows and he wants answers.

"They've hit me really hard," he told the News-Journal. He said it's going to cost him about $4,000 for repairs. His insurance deductible is $5,000

He said he's willing to start a reward fund with owners of other local businesses to help catch the suspects.

Police say the targets appear to have been randomly selected. They are asking for the public's help in solving the case. Anyone with information is asked to call Ormond Beach's Criminal Investigations Division at 386-676-3514.
