Campus police at the University of California, Los Angeles are looking for two suspects involved in a potential hate crime shooting involving a BB gun.
The incident happened at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday when, according to police, two people in a car approached a male UCLA student who was walking on De Neve Drive near Rieber Hall.
“A rear passenger yelled a homophobic slur, then brandished a white BB gun and shot at the victim, striking him below the eye,” UCLA police said in a bulletin.
The victim suffered a minor cut below his eye.
Information about the suspects is extremely limited.
Police say they were driving a white four-door sedan with an unknown make and model, and the driver was wearing a black ski mask.
Anyone with information is urged to call UCLA police at 310-825-1491.
