Three people have been arrested for "deer jacking" in the Town of Floyd.

The Oneida County Sheriff's Office says 22-year old Josh Tanner, 25-year old Alan Tanner and 20-year old Morgan Weiler were driving around spot lighting deer in the area of Soule Road in Floyd.

Deputies say Josh Tanner allegedly fired shots from the vehicle at a deer in a field off just the road.

A resident had called police to report shots fired outside their home.

All three were charged with conspiracy and they're also facing several DEC citations.

The investigation is continuing.
