UCPD responded to an aggravated assault that occurred near Hearst Avenue and Gayley Road at approximately 9:06 p.m. Sunday night, according to a UCPD WarnMe alert.
Three UC Berkeley student campus security officers, or CSOs, were shot at with a BB gun by people driving a grey Mercedes Benz. Two of the three were struck, but not injured.
According to UCPD Sergeant Stephen Burcham, the CSOs were able to give officers a description of the vehicle and the vehicle’s license plate. The car was found nearby around the North Gate entrance to campus, where the CSOs were able to “positively identify” the front passenger as the person who shot the BB gun. The passenger was taken to jail.
The driver and the other passenger were released, according to Burcham.
