Brampton, April 8 (CINEWS): Two incidents in Brampton involving BB guns have alarmed Peel Police into urging the community to come forward “before someone gets seriously hurt” following two incidents this week in Brampton involving BB guns. BB guns are a type of air gun designed to fire spherical projectiles similar to shot pellets of approximately the same size.
Police Tweeted Tuesday night that they hope someone comes forward with information to help track down the culprits: “Remain anonymous if you must, but make the call before someone gets SERIOUSLY hurt!”
While police are looking at similarities, the vehicles involved were different, according to investigators.
They are also looking at a similar incident that happened March 9 when a BB gun was fired at a car at a Brampton intersection.
On Monday night, two children 10 and 13 were playing street hockey when they were shot by men in a car in their mouth and chest and suffered minor injuries Robert Parkinson Drive, in the area of Sandalwood Parkway West and Creditview Road.
Police were looking for two vehicles in that incident – a white, four-door SUV and a white, two-door BMW with black rims.
The next day, Tuesday, Brampton Transit riders were waiting at a bus stop when a BB gun was pointed at them around 1:30 p.m. in the area of Wanless Drive and Van Kirk Drive. Police said it isn’t clear if any shots were fired, but no one was injured.
The suspect was driving a dark coloured Honda four-door vehicle.
A dark coloured vehicle, with two men in their 20s inside, was seen leaving the scene March 9 after BB gun pellets were shot at a car around 6:30 p.m. at the intersection of Sunny Meadow Boulevard and Sandalwood Parkway.
No arrests have been made in any of the incidents.
Last year, two teens were arrested and charged with 145 criminal charges after a BB gun shooting spree targeted Brampton schools, houses and vehicles.
