Mel Lucas, a St. Petersburg cyclist, says two bike riders were shot with BB guns on a Thursday night 5 PM ride.
Please help St. Petersburg Police catch the BB gun shooters.
Here is Mel's report:
Bicyclists who were on the 5:00 ride in St. Petersburg lastnight (8/18/11): If you can offer ANY info on the car, the tag # or of the driver or passenger of the car who shot two of the bicyclists with a BB gun, please do whatever you can to help the SPPD investigate this case by contacting Officer Philip Postle at 893-7780. The case number is 2011-50903. The police have bumped the charge up to a felony. Unless we do what we can to prosecute this type of thing, we will continue to be victims while out cycling. It's your choice.
