BRISTOL, CT (WFSB) -

Police in Bristol said they're investigating a couple of BB gun shooting incidents that happened earlier this year.

They said people were hit by the BBs and had them penetrate the skin.

The first incident happened on Jan. 30 around 6:50 p.m. on a sidewalk in front of 191 Riverside Avenue.

The second took place around 8 p.m. near 220 Blakeslee Street.

Police said both incidents appeared random. The victims were unrelated.

However, "suspect identifiers" are similar in both cases, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Det. Scott Werner at 860-584-3098.
