At this point, investigators have identified several suspects; some of whom are teens. Officials believe they're linked and that there's a group of people behind the violence.
No one has been killed or seriously hurt, but police say they're beefing up patrols. Getting other agencies involved, like the FBI, means it's a serious situation and they want to stop the spike in violence immediately.
Officials ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers. You can remain anonymous.
