The Chatham-Kent Police Service are looking for the public’s help, after a woman was shot in the face with a pellet gun.
Police officials say on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 just after 3 p.m. police received a call-for-service that a group of young people were in the green space area of Indian Creek Road W. near John McGregor Secondary School shooting at one another with pellet guns.
When officers arrived, the group had already left the area and therefore, the officers were not able to speak with any of the young people.
While officers continued to look for this group, another call-for-service was received from a woman who had been struck in the face with a pellet while driving past Indian Creek Road W.
The woman waited until she arrived home safely before making the call to Chatham-Kent Police Service.
Once home, she located a hard, white, circular pellet inside the van had been driving when she was hit in the face.
The pellet appears to have come from an Airsoft gun.
Even though she suffered a large welt just below her left eye, she did not require medical attention.
Police are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying these young people who were shooting at one another with pellet guns and ended up hitting a driver of a vehicle.
