CHESTER - Three men have been arrested in connection with the BB gun shootings in Orange County, according to state police.

A total of three separate incidents were reported to police over the past few days in Kiryas Joel and Monroe. The first BB gun shooting happened on Meron Drive in Kiryas Joel on Tuesday night, while the second shooting happened on Wednesday night on Satmar Drive in Kiryas Joel. The third BB gun shooting involving a Hasidic person happened around 1 p.m. on Thursday on Lakes Road in Monroe.

Police say not just Hasidic Jews were targeted.

Andrew Ippoliti, 18, Patrick E. Boss, 21, and Myroslav Kobernyk, 18, all of Monroe, were charged with menacing and reckless endangerment. Police say the men were apparently scaring people and shooting BB guns at people while driving in a car.

All three suspects were arraigned on Thursday night and posted bail.
