Vehicles, pedestrian hit with blue paintballs in Port Coquitlam
Police are searching for someone who victimized three people with a paintball marker earlier this week.
A vehicle heading westbound on Lougheed Highway near the Coquitlam River Bridge was hit by blue paintballs around midnight, according to Coquitlam RCMP's Cpl. Jamie Chung.
Then a pedestrian walking in the same area was shot several times, followed by a third incident, where a vehicle at Lougheed Highway and Coast Meridian Road was pegged repeatedly with blue paintballs.
All three incidents happened in a two-hour period around midnight Sept. 7.
No suspects have been found.
“If whoever did this thinks it was a funny prank, then that person should give his or her head a shake. Shooting paintballs at someone could cause serious injuries if the projectile hit the eyes. This is not a joking matter and the shooter could face significant criminal charges,” said Chung.
If you have any information call 604-945-1550.
