UPDATED: If you know who shot these men with a BB gun, you better call the cops

York-Poquoson Sheriff’s deputies are looking for people they say shot two men with a BB gun Sunday.

At approximately 5:30 p.m., officers were dispatched to the 1900 block of Kiln Creek Parkway after two men reported being shot with a BB gun by a passenger in a passing vehicle, according to a Facebook post from the sheriff’s office.

The two men, 56 and 61, told deputies they saw a dark blue hatchback or SUV, possibly Mazda or Nissan, with at least five passengers they described as juveniles, said Shelley Ward, sheriff’s office spokeswoman.

On Wednesday, the sheriff’s office wrote in a Facebook post investigators believe the vehicle is a Nissan Rogue — they also released photos of the suspected vehicle.

Investigators said the SUV was “occupied by multiple black males shooting a pellet gun at individuals walking on Kiln Creek Blvd. The suspects also shot out a vehicle window in the 100 block of Aberfeldy Way.”

One of the men reported feeling multiple shots to his leg. The other, who was riding a bicycle at the time, reported being hit on his helmet, forehead and back.

The injuries were not serious enough to require medical attention, authorities said.

Around the same time, deputies received a report that a window of a Ford Explorer in the 100 block of Aberfeldy Way had been shattered by a BB gun, Ward said.

Ward said the sheriff’s office waited to post information about the incident until Tuesday in order to gather all the necessary information.

Authorities are asking anyone who may have information about the incident to call the Crime Line at 888-LOCK-U-UP or the sheriff’s office’s tip line at 757-890-4999 — refer to report No. 1903988.
