Footage showed the suspects arriving in a sedan, with a female passengers firing several shots at the victims.
The driver then pulls away, only to reverse with another occupant firing more shots from the BB gun.
Two of the victims suffered minor injuries Cleveland.com reported.
‘I don’t even remember hearing it go off,’ one of the victims, Brandon Hughes told via FOX19 NOW. ‘So, they speed off laughing, and I’m super confused, and my girlfriend starts freaking out and says, ‘you’re bleeding, you got shot,’ and there’s blood everywhere.’

By Monday, police recovered the vehicle, which had been spray painted to a different color in Covington, Ky. On Monday, police said the sisters were wanted on three counts of assault.
The women’s grandmother had urged the siblings to turn themselves in.
‘I don’t know where they’re at. I don’t know where their babies are at. I don’t know nothing where they’re at. This stuff has gotten me a nervous wreck,’ Linda Barker told WLWT 5.
On Tuesday, police said a man since identified as David White, was also inside the car with the sisters. The man remains at large and is wanted.
It remained unclear how or why the homeless individuals came to be targeted.
