CHULA VISTA, Calif. -- Omar Suner was driving home late on Otay Lakes road when he was pelted with a paintball.

"Soon as I heard it, I was like 'just keep driving. Just keep moving forward, don't even turn." 

The paintball splattered his car, narrowly missing his face through his open window.

"So it could have hit me so I was lucky," Suner said. 

Another neighbor reported someone loading up and shooting at their window with a paintball too.

"At first yeah I got kind of a little bit mad, I was like grrrr." 

Angry -- but also concerned. Omar hopes someone stops the shooter before he gets hurt.

"If this kid's out there doing this kind of pranks, somebody's going to see a gun, they're going to call and he's going to end up really really bad."
