Paintballs fired at tour buses in Dunedin

Police are investigating after paintballs were fired at three tour shuttles in Ravensbourne this afternoon.

The Ritchies buses were hit shortly after 3pm.

Company area manager for Dunedin and Queenstown Peter Varrie said the vehicles were tour shuttles, heading from the Octagon  out to Port Chalmers.

The windscreen of one of the buses was hit, causing problems with visibility, which had the potential to cause a crash, Mr Varrie said.

Police were called immediately and were looking into what had happened.

He was still waiting to hear whether any of the passengers on the shuttles would make a complaint through  ID New Zealand Tours.

The shuttles had been cleaned, and were back in service, he said. A spokeswoman confirmed police were making inquiries into the incident.
