Two people were shot with a BB gun Sunday in East Village downtown and 11 similar shootings were reported in Coronado. Police say someone fired a BB gun from the rear of a white sedan that drove through downtown shortly after midnight.

The shootings happened outside the Omni Hotel on Island Avenue, where two people were hit, and on Park Boulevard, where a vehicle's back window was shot out, according to Officer Dino Delimitros of the San Diego Police Department. A woman was injured in the shootings and treated at the scene. Another victim declined treatment.
