Three 18-year-old Bellarmine-Jefferson High School students are now facing felony charges after being connected with a rash of paintball attacks in Burbank, according to 818Now. The three young men were arrested in early February, along with two teens also affiliated with the case.

"Eric Monson of Tujunga faces 12 felony counts for assault with a deadly weapon, Kevin Yuenyongsakul of Los Angeles faces five and Julian Stephens of Studio City is facing two, including an additional charge for committing a felony while out on bail." The three were scheduled for arraignment this morning in Burbank.

A total of 13 attacks have been logged and are attributed to the five perps, who allegedly commissioned the crimes drive-by style after and before school hours.
