RED LAKE FALLS, Minn. - Three teens who allegedly went on an early morning joyride while shooting pellet pistols at vehicles and Lafayette High School in Red Lake Falls have been arrested, the Red Lake Sheriff’s Department said Monday.

Sauve and one of the boys are from Red Lake Falls and the other boy is from Thief River Falls.

They also face charges in Pennington County in a similar drive-by shooting on the same night, the Red Lake Sheriff’s Department said.

He’s also charged with possession of stolen property, a misdemeanor.

The Pennington County Attorney’s Office will charge the Thief River Falls boy separately.
