Waterloo Regional Police say the recent paintball shootings of a school and a horse and buggy in Woolwich Township were related but did not target the Mennonite community.
Police say they have made arrests and that their investigation led them to a home in Wellington County where officers seized a paintball gun as well as 202 paintballs.
They say a man and three minors are facing charges of mischief under $5,000 in connection with the horse and buggy incident on Dec. 29.
Police have said that the occupants of a white pickup truck repeatedly fired paintballs at a horse and buggy as it travelled down a path near Lions Park, which is located near Whippoorwill and Barnswallow drives in Elmira.
A week earlier, Floridale Parochial School was also vandalized by someone with a paintball gun.
Police say four youths have been jointly charged with breaking and entering with intent to commit an indictable offence as well as mischief under $5,000 in connection to the incident at the school on Dec. 22.
