VISALIA, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) — Authorities say three people were struck by an unknown air soft weapon in Visalia Saturday.

The Visalia Police Department says they responded to the area of Divisadero Street and Meadow Avenue for an assault with a deadly weapon at around 7:30 p.m.

When officers arrived they contacted a family who told authorities they were walking when four-door black Honda or Toyota approached from Divisadero Street.

Officers were then advised that the front passenger in the vehicle shot at the victims with an unknown type of airsoft weapon.

Three of the family members were struck by objects and received minor
injuries. The victims were treated at the scene and released, according to authorities.

Authorities say the incident is not related to any protests that occurred in the City of Visalia today.
