Cleveland Suspects

Two weeks earlier, another airsoft attack happened in a parking lot on McGrady Drive.

Police charged four juveniles for that assault.

The final incident happened Sunday.

This time, a pregnant woman was shot in the face as well as the man with her in front of Game Stop on Frontage Road.

Then a short time later, a vehicle was shot with a BB gun in Bradley County.

Investigators say the same suspects then came back into the city limits and began shooting vehicles at Bradley Square Mall.

Airsoft weapons are considered toy guns, often used in airsoft competitions.

They may look like the real thing.

But the guns are lower powered and fire plastic or softer projectiles.
