A group of women had BBs shot at them from a moving vehicle last Tuesday night while walking to the Dining Commons.

The University sent out a Safety Alert on Friday warning of, “occupants in moving vehicles launching projectiles at individuals walking or standing along the street.”

One student at Georgia Southern told police that she and four of her friends were walking to the Dining Commons from Eagle Village when a white Chevrolet Pickup came down Georgia Avenue, shooting BBs at them from the vehicle, according to a police report.

Two of the five friends decided they would not like to press charges, but UPD is still looking for the perpetrator. 

They ask that if you have any information on the driver’s whereabouts or see any suspicious activity, call the Georgia Southern Police Department at 912-344-3333.
