"The Trooper located a pickup truck in the area where he heard the shots," Beck said in a news release.

"The Trooper stopped the pickup truck and, throughout the investigation, learned the juveniles had been shooting road signs with a 12 gauge shotgun, 9mm pistol, and .22 caliber rifle that was located inside the truck," Beck added.

Beck says a missing 13-year-old girl was also found riding in the pickup with the older juveniles.

"The Wyoming Highway Patrol would like to thank the Laramie County Sheriff’s Office for its help with this investigation," he said.
