A Salina woman sustained minor injuries after an unknown suspect shot her with a pellet gun.

Salina Police Cpt. James Feldman said this morning that at approximately 3:30 p.m., yesterday June 9, a 23-year-old female was walking in Sunset Park, when a white Ford Explorer with black rims drove through.

"An unknown Black male leaned out of the rear passenger window and fired an air gun, hitting the woman in the right upper arm," Feldman said. "The projectile was either a pellet or an Orbeez, causing a small mark on her shoulder."

The police could not identify the vehicle's license plate and were unable to locate it using their FLOCK surveillance system.

Feldman said the drive-by occurred near the park park's playground area.
