Commuters shot at with paintball guns
DARIEN — Two cars were left with orange paint splatters after suspects drove through the Darien train station eastbound lot, firing paintball guns at commuters.
On April 5 around 9 a.m., a 32-year-old Brooklyn man and a 52-year-old New York City man were walking through the railroad lot after getting off the train from New York when a black sedan drove by. Two suspects fired paintball guns from the car at the men, shooting twice and missing them both. A nearby Jeep Grand Cherokee and Volvo SUV were struck by the orange paintballs. The sedan then drove out of the lot onto Squab Lane, heading toward Leroy Avenue.
Police responded to the lot and spoke with the victims, who did not believe they were specifically targeted. They were unable to provide police with a description of the suspects.
Neither car was damaged by the paintballs, other than the paint marks.
