Normally when I hear about a shooting I think of murder or severe injury, but this time its a drive by shooting with a paintball gun?

According to FOX 17, there have be several reports in Kalamazoo of people being shot with a paintball gun in the last 24 hours.

When paintball guns first came out I thought that kids would be shooting houses and cars with them but this is the first time I have ever heard of them being used to do drive by shootings with.

Kalamazoo police were dispatched to Redwood Avenue and Greenwood Avenue Thursday night where a paintball drive by took place. Other victims have also reported to police that they were also shot with a paintball gun.

Police have already located a vehicle and have persons of interest in their sights. So far a 22-year-old male from from Kalamazoo has been arrested. The man was arrested for unrelated warrants but police are still looking into the case.

If you have any information regarding the paintball shooter, you are urged to contact the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety at 269.337.8994.
