The police department had released surveillance footage on Twitter showing the car pulling up to a group of people lying on the sidewalk and at least two people are visible holding an air rifle out of the car window at different times. The car pulled away and then reversed back where the occupants again pointed the BB gun out of the window, the footage shows.
Police asked for help identifying the three occupants of the vehicle and the car itself, which was distinctive in that its hood was a darker shade than the body of the car.
The car has been impounded, police said, but not before someone spray-painted the hood seemingly to attempt to prevent it from being identified.
The shooting caused minor injuries to the people hit by the pellets.
