Paintball shots fired

A woman strolling down Perry St in Masterton yesterday was the unlucky target of someone’s paintball gun being fired from a passing car. Police confirmed the woman was struck by the paintball pellet and received a minor leg injury. Due to a delayed response in reporting the incident, police said they were unable to locate the sharp-eyed offender.

According to MetService, Wairarapa is included in a strong wind watch today where south to southwest winds may approach severe gale in exposed places overnight.
