Over the past week, multiple students have reported to police that they have been struck by paintballs while on campus, according to the Cornell University Police Department.
A “black or dark-colored sedan” driving around campus has targeted students with a paintball gun that would be discharged while moving, according to police. Mutliple incidents have been reported at different locations on campus Tuesday and last Thursday between 5:45 p.m. and 11 p.m.
Under New York State law, possession of “any sort of weapon that fires a projectile is illegal on campus,” according to police.
“This behavior is intolerable on campus or off,” police said in a crime alert sent to Cornellians Wednesday evening.
Police are continuing to investigate the incidents. Officials said they “strongly encourage anyone who has been a victim of this harassment” or anyone else with information regarding the incident to contact CUPD.
