A spokesperson for the Riverside Police Department has confirmed they are searching for a perpetrator that shot a 21 year-old woman with a BB gun while she was eating at a fast food restaurant.
The incident happened on the last day of July, they said, and the shot was apparently fired by an unknown person from a location police believe was across the street. The Press Enterprise reports the victim was holding an infant at the time she was shot.
Photos of her injury were posted on social media.
Investigators said the suspect is described as being an African American male who was wearing shorts and a white shirt. Witnesses said they saw him leave the scene of the crime on a bicycle. Authorities have said they are working on obtaining surveillance footage from local businesses in hopes this will help them make a positive identification.
Anyone who thinks they have information that could lead to the capture of the shooter is asked to call the Riverside Police Department.
