Suspects in two southwest Houston drive-by shootings Sunday didn't use bullets on their victims, police said. They fired paintballs instead.

According to Houston police, a man and two elderly women were waiting at a bus stop around 1 p.m. in front of a church on Westheimer at Rogerdale when someone started firing a paintball gun at them from a maroon Ford F-150 pickup truck.

Authorities said a similar paintball incident occurred earlier Sunday just a few miles away on Eldridge at Richmond. The suspects in that attack were in a silver sedan.

Anyone with information on either of these incidents is asked to call HPD.
