A series of BB gun shootings were reported across San Diego County on Sunday.

Several reports came in from different neighborhoods including downtown, Paradise Hills, National City, and Coronado.

Downtown:

Shootings occurred Sunday around 5 a.m. near Island and 7th Avenue, two blocks from Petco Park. Two people were injured, and only one was transported to the hospital.

Police said people also reported getting shot at 13th Street and Market Street, as well as reports of broken car windows on Park Boulevard.

The Gaslamp Quarter and the East Village were busy with visitors in town for Comic-Con 2019.

The shooting suspect was reportedly inside a white sedan and was said to be shooting from the back seat, according to police.

Paradise Hills:

Several cars had their windows shot out in a Paradise Hills neighborhood. People who live along Reo Terrace told NBC 7 that several cars had their windows broken when they were shot at by a BB gun. They said only one side of the street had damaged cars.

“I got a call from one of the owners about 4, 4:30 this morning. So, I took my Doberman, and her and I came out and we walked the streets and saw what was broken. They didn’t touch any of our property,” said Belda Smith, a resident of Paradise Hills.

Another resident, José Avila, told NBC 7 he spoke with neighbors and heard of reported shootings on Reo Drive that shattered car windows.

“We got here about 12, 12:15 last night, and I looked over to this vehicle right behind me and I saw that it was shattered, so I begged to wonder if there were any other incidents,” Avila said.

Coronado:

The Coronado Police Department said they had 11 incidents reported of someone who used a BB gun to shoot out several windows around town overnight.

National City:

National City Police Sgt. Springer confirmed that one business, four vehicles, and one home were hit by a BB gun.

Crimes committed with BB guns have popped up all over the city in the last few weeks.

Law enforcement is working to see if there’s a link between the crimes.

No arrests have been made.
