Two sisters have been charged with shooting at homeless people with an air rifle from a car in Cincinnati, though they have not been arrested.

Police say 29-year-old Brittany Hopper and 28-year-old Kelsey Hopper have been charged with three counts of assault for firing a BB gun at two people in the Over-The-Rhine neighborhood early in the morning on June 3.

The police have asked the siblings to turn themselves in.

The police department had released surveillance footage showing the car pulling up to a group of people lying on the sidewalk. At least two people are visible in the footage holding an air rifle out of the car window at different times.

The shooting caused minor injuries to the people hit by the pellets.

The car has been impounded, police said, but not before someone spray-painted the hood seemingly to attempt to prevent it from being identified.
