MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) --Milwaukee police say two people have been arrested for shooting a high-powered pellet gun at people on the Hank Aaron Trail.

The suspects are accused of shooting four teenagers and a dog on July 18. The victims ended up being okay.

Previously police said the people with the pellet gun took a high vantage point over the trail - possibly aiming at people from a building above the bluff around the Menomonee Valley.

While details have not yet been released about the arrested individuals, the people who were shot were young: three 16-year-olds and a 14-year-old.

Authorities said they thought they'd been shot by actual bullets. Only their dog - which was also shot - had to be taken to the vet.

Charges are pending for the two suspects. More details will be released on the situation once the criminal complaint is filed.
