TULSA - The Tulsa County Sheriff's office has arrested two juveniles after shots were fired at several vehicles along Highway 75.

TSCO says they came into contact with a man who claimed his son and son's friend had been out the night before hunting and shooting.

Detectives questioned both boys, who later confessed to shooting at the vehicles along Highway 75.

Both juveniles will be booked on eight counts of assault with a deadly weapon and eight counts of reckless handling of a firearm.

Authorities say the shootings happened between 8:30 and 10:30 both Sunday and Monday night.

A total of five vehicles were shot Sunday night. The list of vehicles struck include a Swift truck and a personal vehicle.

Drivers reported hearing something like a rock hitting the truck and didn't know they had rounds fired at them.

Officials say three Walmart truck drivers reported bullet holes in their trucks as they arrived at the company's distribution center in Ocheleta. The drivers told sheriff's deputies the shots were fired while traveling northbound on Highway 75 between 106th Street North and 156th Street North. 

Deputies say another Walmart driver's vehicle was hit traveling southbound on his way to Oklahoma City.
