OMAHA — More than a dozen people around Omaha have reported since Saturday night that they have been hit by paintballs.

Most of the incidents were in northeast and southeast Omaha, but a couple of reports were from west Omaha.

The first incident, which occurred Saturday at about 9 p.m., was reported by a 14-year-old boy who told people he was hit in the back three times. Home video surveillance footage showed a white four-door sedan drive by at about that time, but it didn’t show the paintball incident.

Someone who was hit Sunday night reported that paintballs were fired at him from people in a black Jeep.

And a person who filed a report about a Monday incident said a white car had sped off afterward.

The people who were hit reported red, circular welts on their bodies.

Police had not reported any arrests by Tuesday morning.
