GREENSBURG, Pa. (AP) - A western Pennsylvania school district say a game known as Squirt Gun Assassin is getting out of hand.

Officials in the Hempfield Area School District tell KDKA-TV (https://cbsloc.al/22z5Rtq ) students are chasing school buses and one another in cars, and stalking one another.

High school freshman John Malinac says only seniors are playing the game, in which they win money if they eliminate one another by assassinating other players using squirt guns. His dad, Mike Malinac, says he doesn’t believe anyone’s gotten hurt, but says “sometimes things get out of hand.”

High school principal Kathy Charlton sent a letter to parents warning of the danger, and says police have had to be called several times. She says the game isn’t sponsored by the school and can’t be played on school property.
