SAN DIEGO -- Two people were hurt and dozens of vehicles were damaged after police say someone with a BB gun went on a drive-by shooting spree in various San Diego communities early Sunday morning.

A passenger in a white sedan drove through the neighborhood around midnight, shooting at multiple targets, including a woman who was hit by at least one of the BBs on 7th Street and Island Avenue, the San Diego Police Department said. She was treated by paramedics and loaded into an ambulance but expected to be OK.

People outside Omni Hotel on L Street also reported the car driving by and opening fire, and on nearby Park Boulevard, a BB shattered the back window of a parked car. One other person was hit by a BB but did not need medical help, police said.

Police said at least 20 people in Paradise Hills woke up to find their cars shot up and windows shattered.

Sven Lindquist spent most of his Sunday morning sweeping shattered glass. He woke up to find the windows of both his vehicles shot out. "I just need to fix it I guess,” Lindquist said. “He has video on the house here, surveillance -- so he said he saw a white car,” Lindquist said.

According to police, there were numerous reports of a white sedan driving around with someone shooting a BB gun in National City, Coronado, the Gaslamp and the East Village.

Investigators did not have a detailed description of the shooter.

Police have asked anyone with information to call the San Diego Police Department at 888-580-8477.
