LAKEWOOD, Colo. — Investigators with the Lakewood Police Department are looking for suspects who shot nearly a dozen businesses with a BB gun in the past week.

Most of the places vandalized are located on Wadsworth Boulevard between 1st Avenue and 20th Avenue, and many of the businesses' windows were damaged, police said.

According to Lakewood police, there has been a total of 28 cases of vandalism in the area over the past two months. Nine of those cases happened within the past 10 days.

The crimes occurred at different times throughout the day.

Lakewood police are asking the public for help identifying the suspects. Investigators ask anyone with information to call them at 303-987-7150.

Police said they're still gathering evidence and hope to get surveillance video from at least one business.
