CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) — Police are searching for the person who shot several kids with a BB gun recently.

Thursday just before 4 p.m., three children were walking home from school when they say they were shot with a BB gun by someone driving past them near Montevalle Park on Duncan Ranch Rd. The children didn't need medical attention, but they did have visible injuries, Chula Vista Police said.

Two of the girls told 10News reporter Laura Acevedo that a white SUV pulled up next to them before they were shot.

"The windows went down, and they yelled cuss words at us, and then they just pulled out the BB gun and they shot us," Bella Budd told 10News.

"If they had hit us in the eye or anywhere else more dangerous, we could've been rushed to the ER or seriously hurt," Brianna Field added.

Since that report, CVPD said two other people have also reported being shot with BB gun by an unknown suspect.

A description of a vehicle or suspect wasn't immediately available.

CVPD is investigating and says anyone with information is asked to call 619-691-5151.
