RACINE — A Racine man is facing charges for allegedly shooting out a vehicle's back window with a BB gun. 

Trevon J. Bunck, 19, of the 700 block of Villa Street, is facing three felony counts of bail jumping and misdemeanor counts of criminal damage to property, possession of drug paraphernalia, disorderly conduct and nine counts of misdemeanor bail jumping. 

According to the criminal complaint:

At 11:09 a.m. Wednesday, a Racine Police Department officer was dispatched to the intersection of 12th Street and Washington Avenue for a report of shots fired. A witness said he had stopped at a traffic light on Washington Avenue when he heard a pop and his vehicle's rear window shattered. The officer saw the broken window and a small hole near the top consistent with a BB shot. 

The witness said he saw an unknown person quickly shut a window of a second floor apartment at 1200 Washington Avenue right after his window was shot out.

The witness then called police and watched the apartment. An officer spoke with a man, Bunck, who exited the apartment, which reportedly only had one entrance/exit.

Bunck said he had been in the apartment with his child and his child's mother and didn't know anything about a BB gun being fired. 

The officer and Bunck returned to the apartment and spoke with the mother of Bunck's child. She said Bunck was in a bedroom when she heard the sound of a BB gun being fired. She said Bunck allegedly left the bedroom laughing and said he had done something and had to go. 

Bunck's child's mother reportedly found the BB gun with a working CO2 cartridge inside inside the bedroom.

Another witness was reportedly in the bedroom when Bunck allegedly loaded the BB gun and fired it out the window. 

While arresting Bunck, an officer found a metal marijuana pipe in Bunck's pants that smelled of burnt marijuana. 

Due to three pending misdemeanor cases and one pending felony case he is currently facing, Bunck netted additional bail jumping charges.

His next appearance is a preliminary hearing on March 8 at the Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave.
