Mail vehicle damaged by possible BB gun

Shooting on Camino de la Reina, Mission Valley

SAN DIEGO - A mail vehicle was damaged in Mission Valley Friday and San Diego Police say it might have been caused by a BB gun.

A 911 caller reported that the U.S. Postal Service truck had been fired on by what sounded like a pellet-firing air gun in the 1950 block of Camino de la Reina about 3:15 p.m., according to San Diego police.

As officers investigated, dispatchers received several more reports of similar popping noise, SDPD Officer Jim Johnson said.

No injuries were reported. The mail vehicle appeared to have sustained some minor damage.

Patrol personnel searched a large apartment complex near the scene of the apparent shootings, Johnson said.

There were no reported arrests by late Friday afternoon.
