Late-Night Red Deer Paintballing Has People Running For Cover


RED DEER, Alta. - Charges are pending against four people after a series of fast-moving paintball attacks on three restaurants in Red Deer, Alta.

RCMP say several paintballs were fired at a coffee shop just before midnight Wednesday.

About 15 minutes later, four people in a white pickup truck shot at a woman while she was standing outside a pizza restaurant.

Police say just three minutes later, a masked male went into a fast-food restaurant and fired paintballs at two employees before fleeing in a white truck.

Mounties picked up three adults and a minor in a pickup soon after and also seized two paintball guns.

Police say the three people who were hit suffered only minor injuries.
