The case of three accused paintball shooters was heard briefly at the Red Deer provincial courthouse on Wednesday.

Late on the evening of March 14, RCMP received a complaint regarding a male who shot a number of paintballs at the Tim Hortons on Gaetz Avenue and 67th Street.

A short time later, a woman reported that four occupants in a white truck shot paintballs at her as she stood in front of the Boston Pizza restaurant at 7494 Gaetz Ave.

Just three minutes later, a call was received from the nearby McDonald’s alleging that a masked male had shot two employees with paintballs before fleeing the scene with other suspects.

Police tracked down the truck, arresting the four people inside. It’s alleged that two paintball guns were found inside.

One person is a youth, while the three others are adults.

Adult suspects Ashley Young, 19, Lucas Andreef, 20, and Justin Calderbank, 18, are to attend the courthouse’s Case Management Office on June 19 to enter their pleas.

All three face charges for assault with a weapon and mischief damage under $5,000.

Calderbank also faces three charges for possession of a weapon dangerous to the public.
