COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Police in Colorado arrested eight boys they say took part in stealing and crashing a sport-utility vehicle and committing several other crimes.

Colorado Springs police say the crimes began with the theft of the Toyota 4Runner on Tuesday.

Police allege people in the Toyota fired shots at a home Wednesday. Nobody was hurt but police say a boy later stole from a liquor store before fleeing in the SUV.

Calls came in later that boys in the SUV stole a diaper bag and backpack from a woman at gunpoint and pointed a gun at another vehicle.

The Colorado Springs Gazette reports the Toyota later collided with another vehicle and they arrested eight boys who fled on foot.

Police didn't identify the juveniles, who ranged in age from 12 to 17.
