Carbondale police and the SIU Department of Public Safety are continuing to investigate several incidents of pedestrians getting hit by shots fired from either a BB gun or an air soft gun. Over the last two weeks, there were separate reports of shots fired from a white pickup truck, a maroon vehicle, and a tan 4-door vehicle. The latest incident occurred early Saturday morning after police responded to a report of a damaged windshield on East Park Street. Police do not know if any of these incidents are connected. If you have any information, call Carbondale police at 457-3200, or the anonymous Crimestoppers tip line at 549-COPS.
