DALEVILLE, AL (WSFA) -

The City of Daleville is on alert.

Just this week a bus, restaurant, home and several vehicles have all been shot at by someone using a BB gun.

Monday night Daleville police officers responded after a bus was shot by a BB gun on Daleville Avenue. Passengers were on board, but no one was hurt.

Less than 24 hours later, police received a similar call. This time a Subway restaurant had been hit.

Five of the front windows still have pellet holes. While most of the cases have only involved property damage, police are on high alert.

"In today's world we have BB guns that are high powered. They are powered by co2 they can put an eye out they can cause injury," said Sgt. Stacey Austin.

For residents like Timothy Meissner who has lived in Daleville for 16 years, he's never heard of anything like this happening.

"It makes me kinda scared whoever will be next. I hope they catch them and punish them the way they should be punished," Meissner said.

Austin says Daleville police are working around the clock to get the person or persons involved off the street. But help from residents is vital.

We're told Geneva and Newton police are investigating similar cases. They are working with Daleville police, and they do believe the cases may be connected.

The public is asked to report any information that could help solve the cases by calling the Daleville Department of Public Safety at 334-598-4442.

    When I've shown the handful of photographs I have of male Painted Buntings to friends and family members who aren't into birding, a common question is, "Is that real?" It's a natural response: The mix of bright blue, red, green and yellow on the male Painted Bunting looks more like how my granddaughter would color a bird in her coloring book than real life.
