Police say three men in their 20s went on a paintball-firing spree in downtown Halifax early Saturday evening.


At 6:39 p.m., Halifax Regional Police responded to the south end of Barrington St. where the driver of a truck alleged he was struck with a paintball. Shortly after, police say they were getting reports of area businesses also being struck with paintballs, including one on Sackville St.


Witnesses told police a grey Mazda with several people inside was involved in the incidents.


At 7:30 p.m., police located the vehicle on Barrington St. and three males were taken into custody. Two of the men are aged 27 and the other is 16.


They are each facing charges of public mischief and were released to appear in court at a later date.
