Pellet Guns and Paintballs

The Sun has a story about two 11-year-old boys who were shot with a pellet gun at an Elkridge area bus stop on separate days last week, prompting authorities to step up patrols near Mayfield Woods Middle and Deep Run Elementary. The kids suffered minor injuries.

"The suspect is described as a young male with a thin build. He was wearing a black ski mask and camouflage," the story says.

The report reminded us of this notice that went out in River Hill recently:

"On Monday, October 1:
The occupants of a blue car shot paintballs at a jogger on Great Star. Later in the day the eighth grade classes at Clarksville Middle School were outside and students were participating on the fields, when four to five teenage boys in the woods shot paintballs at them. When one of the PE teachers went over toward the trees, the teenagers ran off. Both incidents were reported to the Police Department. The Police Department is continuing area checks in the community. Detectives assigned to the case are following leads ."

Anyone with information is asked to call police 410-313-3200.
