Police searching for those shooting BB gun in Cannelton park

Posted: Updated:

Cannelton police are searching for the person or persons responsible of shooting people with a BB gun in Cannelton City Park.

So far, the only real damage done by stray BB's in the park has been to street signs, but Police Chief Lee Hall says about ten people have reported being shot in the past month.

Hall says the attacks have been reported by both kids and adults. He says no one has been seriously injured in the shootings and they don't know who's doing the shooting.

We're told the department has increased patrols in the park area.

"Since we've increased the patrols and everything, these types of calls have started to decrease. So, we want people to know that it's still safe to go down there. It's just, if they see anything out of ordinary, to call and let us know, so we can take what action is necessary," Hall says.

He says most of these attacks occur during the late afternoon hours and early evening hours.

If you have any information that can help in the investigation, you are encouraged to contact police.
