The improper use of a paint ball gun has landed a 19 year old Hamilton man in hot water.
He's facing assault with a weapon charges after two people were struck by paint balls late Monday afternoon.
A 44 year old woman was struck several times in the upper body while sitting at the corner of Main Street East and Balmoral Avenue.
A 34 year old man was also hit while in the same area at about the same time. Two businesses in the area were also struck by paintballs.
Investigators tracked their suspect to an empty apartment nearby after checking out the evidence and determining where the shots had come from. Three other young men were released without charges.
