NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Metro police are investigating after at least two people and a business were shot with paintballs in downtown Nashville Tuesday night.

According to Metro police, a man was walking near the intersection of Tenth Circle North and Gay Street around 10:20 p.m., when paintballs were fired at him. The victim was hit in the leg, officers said.

The people believed to have fired the paintballs fled in a red or dark orange Camaro or Charger with tinted windows, investigators explained.

About 20 minutes later, police said a similar incident was reported at Hermitage Avenue and Korean Veterans Boulevard. No additional information was released about that situation.
