Dumbasses are shooting paintballs at people in Whitestone
Paintball guns are supposed to be used for a game, but whoever has been leaving splatters on cars and homes in Queens is now pulling the trigger on people.
As CBS2’s Tracee Carrasco reported, the paintball assailants have already caused at least one serious injury.
Police said that incident was one of seven paintball attacks in Queens in the last few weeks. The first started back on May 25 on 17th Road in Whitestone.
The Maris family was home when their front window was shot at.
“All of the sudden, it went boom — and then I saw my screen broken, and then orange paint was all over the window,” said Marlene Maris.
The suspects also fired their paintball gun a few houses away – not before stealing as potted plant and Kimberly Leone’s son’s toys right off the front porch.
“Now we have to look around and look over our shoulder, like, why is this happening?” Leone said.
But even more terrifying, police said the three teenage suspects are now driving around and shooting at people in the area.
Last Thursday night, a 48-year-old woman was hit, and then a 29-year-old man. And on Friday night, a 15-year-old was struck, and later, a 17-year-old boy who suffered a serious eye injury.
Police believe the suspects may even be videotaping their violent crimes. The victims want them caught.
