Police are investigating a series of BB-gun attacks early Sunday morning that left two people injured in downtown San Diego and numerous shattered windows in Coronado.

Witnesses in downtown’s East Village told a videographer that a shooter was firing from the rear of a white sedan that drove through the area after midnight.

Shots were apparently fired outside the Omni Hotel, along Island Avenue where at least two people were hit, and on Park Boulevard, where a vehicle’s back window was shot out.

San Diego Police said a woman who was hit was treated by paramedics at the scene; another victim declined treatment.

Large Comic-Con crowds filled the East Village and Gaslamp Quarter Saturday night and early Sunday.

Across the bay in Coronado, police reported 11 BB-gun incidents early Sunday morning.

“In addition to car windows being damaged, a business in the 1200 block of Orange Avenue reported two of their windows shattered, and a homeowner reported having their front window broken,” Coronado Police said.

San Diego Police have been investigating a series of BB-gun attacks in neighborhoods across San Diego that began in late June.
