Teenagers face felony charges after an Oct. 14 incident that involved destroying each other's vehicle windows and an alleged kidnapping.

Yavapai County Sheriff's deputies were called to the community around 1:30 a.m. on a report that the back window of a Chevy S-10 had been shot out on Beaver Creek Road. Deputies spoke to Scott Dorrington, 18, of Rimrock, who told them he had been at home with his girlfriend on Javalina Trail when he heard a "boom" and discovered the window of his friends truck had been shot out, according to the report.

He told deputies he recognized a suspect vehicle and said Damian Hall, 18, Rimrock was probably the one who shot out the window. Dorrington and Timothy Anduiza, 20, Camp Verde, went looking for Hall. According to the report, deputies found two shotguns in the Chevy S-10.

While deputies were investigating, they received a report of an assault at Hall's home on Valley Vista Drive. They learned that Anduiza had gone to the home but when he discovered Hall was not there, he allegedly forced Hall's 15-year-old friend into his vehicle at gunpoint.

According to the report, Anduiza and Dorrington forced the boy to direct them to the home of Hall's girlfriend on Rimrock Drive.

They then spotted Hall in a vehicle and gave chase, threatening him with a shotgun, deputies say. Hall escaped, but Anduiza and Dorrington found his abandoned vehicle and allegedly smashed out one of the windows. The kidnap victim was released uninjured.

Deputies found Hall at his girlfriend's home, where he was hiding out while contacting the YCSO. Deputies also recovered a firearm at that time.

Dorrington is charged with kidnapping, prohibited possession of a weapon and drug paraphernalia possession. Anduiza is charged with kidnapping, prohibited possession of a weapon, drug paraphernalia possession and defacing property. Hall is charged with several counts of aggravated assault and endangerment as well as a drive-by shooting violation and discharging a firearm toward a structure.

All were booked at the Camp Verde Detention Center, and the incident remains under investigation.
