Woman charged with assault for shooting teens with BB gun

A Lebanon County woman faces aggravated assault and other charges for shooting two teenagers with a BB gun.

Lori Marie Louden, 21, of Richland, fired BB's that hit both teens in the head and struck one of them in the leg, according to state police in Jonestown.

The 13- and 14-year-old girls were making a lot of noise Saturday night while playing on the sidewalk in front of Louden's apartment in the first block of E. Main Street.

Louden became annoyed and fired several BB's at the teens to quiet them down, police said.

In addition to aggravated assault, she was charged with recklessly endangering, simple assault, carrying or discharging air rifles, harassment and disorderly conduct.

She was released after posting $5,000 bond and is set to appear before a district judge for a preliminary hearing on Nov. 20.
