TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Four area teenagers are facing multiple charges after shots were fired into a Terre Haute residence on North 12th Street Sunday night.

No one was injured.

Nineteen-year-old Britney Dove and 18-year-olds Donald Johnson and Jesse Hobbs were charged with burglary, robbery and criminal recklessness. A juvenile was also arrested following the incident.

Police patrolling in the area heard the gunshots and pulled over a truck with the four teens inside. During a search of the vehicle, officers found ammunition and a black revolver.

At first, the teens denied knowing anything about the shooting, but later admitted they had planned to steal money and drugs from the home. According to court documents, Dove stayed in the vehicle while the other three went to the door. Once Johnson fired shots, they ran back to the truck and drove away.

Residents inside the house said they heard five gunshots and saw plaster dust flying from the walls in the kitchen, but were unable to see who was firing the shots.

Dove was released on her own recognizance. Johnson and Hobbs are being held on $50,000 cash only bond.
