Three young men have been arrested after shooting a group of children dressed up in Halloween costumes while trick-or-treating in North Miami. Marc Dolcine, 18, Rodson Travine, 19, and Darrel Labranche, 21, are now facing charges of aggravated battery.

A holiday safety enforcement detail witnessed the three pull up in a car near Northeast Seventh Avenue and 132nd Street and opened up fire on a group of children.

The chunky trio tried to flee but were stopped by a North Miami police officer and arrested.

All three are now in jail with bonds set at $7,500 each.

Though not deadly, paintballs can still cause harm, especially to young children. A direct hit to an unprotected eye can cause loss of vision.
