Waco Police are looking for several suspects after two victims were shot in the face by a pellet gun Sunday afternoon.

The first incident happened just before 2 p.m. in the 2200 block of Mackenzie Avenue.

The 13-year-old victim, who was shot just below the eye, told police a gray vehicle drove up to him and started shooting.

He was taken to the hospital where he was treated for his injury.

Five minutes later, police received a call about a second incident in the 2600 block of Stewart Drive involving a light blue vehicle opening fire with a pellet gun.

The 18-year-old victim told police he was jogging when a car drove up and started shooting at him.

He was hit at least six times, including right above one of his eyes, and was treated for injuries at the scene.

Police say these two incidents are most likely connected, and urge anyone with information regarding the shootings to call police.
