CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) – Police in Camden are on the hunt for at least two suspects in connection to a number of paintball attacks in the city. Police are now asking for the public’s help identifying the suspects’ vehicle.
The catholic diocese building in Camden, N.J., is still peppered with paintball splatter.
Camden police say multiple males inside a green four-door Chevrolet Lumina were involved in at least two paintball shootings over the last few days.
“It’s going to take us a little while, we’ve been cleaning up for two days and the paint is still on the wall. So it’s going to take us a little more time. And nobody wants to have to do that,” Camden Catholic Diocese Communications Director, Michael Walsh says.
The first incident happened around 1 a.m. Sunday around near 15 N. 7th St. Police say two men approached a male victim who was walking down the street and fired multiple paintballs at him.
The second attack happened Monday around 6 a.m. near Broadway and Jackson Street. In this incident, a woman who was walking in the area reported that several unknown male suspects in a vehicle fired paintballs at her and other people.
She says minutes later she witnessed people from the same car firing paintballs near Broadway and Everett Street.
