Charles County Sheriff’s officers are seeking information about the suspects involved in several recent incidents in which they shot people with paintballs. On October 30 and then again on November 6, officers responded to various locations throughout Waldorf after people reported being shot by suspects who were firing paintballs at them. One person was transported to a hospital for treatment of a severe eye injury caused by being struck with a paintball. Further, while the cases on October 30 and November 6 appear to be related, there have been similar calls previously reported throughout the year.   

One of the suspect vehicles involved in the most recent assaults was captured on a surveillance camera. It appears to be a gold-colored Hyundai, possibly a Sonata or Elantra, with a sunroof. An additional suspect vehicle was described as a silver Toyota, possibly a Camry or Corolla.
