Coquitlam Mounties are searching for clues to help them track down a paintball sniper who attacked three people in a two-hour period late Saturday night and early Sunday morning.
The three attacks happened around Lougheed Highway, starting with paintballs being fired at one car, then at a pedestrian in the area before the final attack on another vehicle.
RCMP said the assailant used blue paintballs during the attack.
“If whoever did this thinks it was a funny prank, then that person should give his or her head a shake,” said Cpl. Jamie Chung. “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.”
No one was seriously injured in the attacks.
