Three teens have been arrested and are facing felony assault charges after they were caught driving around Spokane neighborhoods shooting pedestrians with a paintball gun.
On Wednesday, Spokane police received multiple calls that a truck was driving past pedestrians in the Shadle and Hillyard neighborhoods, and shooting them with paintballs.
At least five people reported they had been shot by paintballs from the truck, though officers believe more people were assaulted.
Maria McLauchlin was hit three times while standing outside her house on North Addison.
"It was like a pop, pop type of thing and then it was over," Maria McLauchlin said. "Oh, it just stung really bad," she added.
McLauchlin's mom, Cleta Delacruz was also hit while driving a few blocks away.
"All of a sudden we heard this boom, hit our windshield and yellow paint was like splattered on it and he [husband] says 'that truck just shot a paintball," Cleta Delacruz said.
"How bizarre to hit a car and it just so happens to be the parents of the girl you just hit? I mean how bizarre it that?" Delacruz said.
