Known as “Van Man” on K95.5, Jason Beach was driving down Highway 271 about three miles south of Hugo when a pellet hit his passenger side window, causing it to shatter.

Beach told sheriff deputies he saw some kids run off into the woods. There are main suspects, but authorities are still investigating.
