PALO ALTO, Calif. (AP) - Three people were injured by green paintballs shot from a moving car in the San Francisco Bay Area.

KNTV reports (https://bit.ly/1bABNd7 ) Thursday that police are looking for at least two suspects who shot a paintball gun in Palo Alto Tuesday night.

An older man out with a walk with his wife was stuck in the hip. The woman was not hit. Two other pedestrians were also hit in separate incidents.

Palo Alto police Lt. Zach Perron says it was the first paintball assault case in at least three years.

Paintballs are projectiles that travel at a high speed and can cause serious injury.

Perron says the suspects could face misdemeanor vandalism and misdemeanor battery charges, or felony assault with a deadly weapon if the victims were seriously injured.
