WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

Four people were booked into jail following two nights of assault reports to WFPD.

Officials said it began Wednesday night when officers were called to various locations throughout the city after several people reported being shot with paintballs.

Police caught the suspects in the 1200 block of Kenley Avenue just after 8:30 p.m. Thursday night. Officials say more than a dozen people were injured over the two days.

A paintball gun with orange paintballs was found inside the suspect vehicle.
