Man says paint-ballers attacked him
SNELLVILLE - A man told police he was shot at by a man with a paint-ball gun as he exited a Snellville Wal-Mart Thursday.
The man said he was walking out the rear door of a Wal-Mart at 3435 Centerville Highway when a white man fired a paint-ball gun at him, striking a nearby door.
He told police the shooter was accompanied by two other white men in an SUV. He was unable to obtain a license plate number.
Police found no witnesses, and Wal-Mart surveillance video was not clear enough to see the vehicle's license plate, according to a police report.
