Authorities say a South Florida man was struck by paintballs outside of a Family Dollar store for no apparent reason.
Miami-Dade Police responded to the scene of the paintball attack in the area of Northwest 27th Avenue and Sharazad Boulevard, just before 10 p.m., Tuesday.
The victim, Jerry Watson, said he was standing outside the business when a car approached him.
“Two dudes jumped out of the car and started shooting me with the paintball guns,” he said, according to a report by WSVN7.
Watson said he attempted to ward off his attackers.
The incident reportedly started in Miami Gardens, though it’s unclear how it ended up in Opa-locka.
