Softball coaches at Palo Verde High School say their cars were damaged after a group of kids threw rocks.

It happened Thursday afternoon. Assistant coach Missy McCormick says they were in the middle of practice when someone ran up to them saying her car had been hit.

She says she saw a group of 6 or 7 students pelting rocks from the top of a hill near the baseball fields down to the row of cars parked below.

McCormick says as this was going on, a boy waiting for his mom to pick him up from school had to hide under a picnic bench to avoid being hit.

They called Clark County School District police, but by the time crews arrived, the kids were gone.  

"It seems like it was pushed aside," McCormick said.  

CCSD police confirmed to us that the incident happened but said it seemed to be "kids being kids."

McCormick says that wasn't the case.  

"I'm a CCSD employee, and I don't think that was just kids being kids," she says.

McCormick says she is a Palo Verde grad herself and things weren't like this when she was there in 2011.

They were able to get pictures of the kids, who appeared to be students there.
