Kemberly Richardson has the details from the Bronx.

Police are searching for several suspects wanted for more than two dozen incidents of criminal mischief across the Bronx.

Authorities say the group traveled around in a white, four-door sedan with dark tinted windows Sunday night, using marbles as projectiles to damage 28 businesses, including an Applebee's and a Target, along with a car and a bus.

The incidents happened between 7:15 p.m. and 8:40 p.m. and left the storefronts with shattered windows and employees and customers ducking for cover.

"Crazy, it's crazy," deli worker Anaas Salha said. "The first time this has happened...(I could have) maybe got killed by this one. Not hit, killed. Glass, heavy-duty glass, got broken. Just imagine if someone got hit in the head. They'd be dead."
