Two Washington state teens allegedly opened fire on an elementary school in Marysville on New Year's Eve and bragged about it at a party, according to court documents, the Everett Herald reported.

Teven Callan, 18, and Samuel D. Olson, 19, appeared in Everett District Court on Friday, where Judge Anthony Howard ruled that Marysville police had cause to arrest them during its investigation for felony first-degree malicious mischief, the newspaper reported.

Howard set bail for Callan and Olson at $10,000 each, the newspaper said. Authorities told the Herald that the investigation remained open and was examining if others might have been involved.

Police said more than 60 shots appeared to have been fired at Pinewood Elementary School, causing from $35,000 to $55,000 in damage, the Herald said.

Authorities said, according to the newspaper, that security footage suggested that the shots were fired from an inner courtyard between 11:55 p.m. on New Year’s Eve and 12:20 a.m. on New Year's Day, when people would have been lighting off fireworks.

"The timing of the vandalism with New Year's Eve fireworks is not lost on us," Marysville Police Commander Mark Thomas said in a department statement. "Based on our investigation, the totality of what we are seeing, our experience, and the trajectory of the bullets, this appears to us as an act of vandalism and not targeted toward any person or persons."

Four classroom buildings, the library, office and gym were damaged in the shooting, the newspaper said. Police found bullet casings near the playground and a street light in the south parking lot was shot out, according to the Herald.

Callan and Olson allegedly arrived at a New Year's Eve gathering "shortly after midnight bragging that they had shot up Pinewood Elementary School," Marysville police wrote in a probable cause statement released Friday.
