TOQUERVILLE, Utah (AP) -- Police are on the lookout this morning for those responsible for putting bullet holes in a water tank in southern Utah.

The incident apparently happened on Sunday. That's when deputies say they discovered water spraying out of the two bullet holes in the Westfield water tank.

Witnesses claim several teenagers were shooting rifles in the area. They say the teens then left in a Ford F-350 extended-cab truck.

Officers say the bullet holes caused extensive damage to the tank --- which supplies water to the community of Toquerville. Deputies say a half-million gallons of water will now need to be drained out of the tank in order to fix it.
