According to an update from the City of Beloit Police Department, over the last week they have been seeing people using Orbeez guns. These are toy guns which fire a projectile, which is about the size of a pea, by use of a spring and an air piston. The police department says most people have been using them appropriately in their yards, but over the weekend they have received multiple calls of kids doing drive-by shootings with the guns, and hitting a few people who did not want to be shot. Yesterday officers stopped a car where one juvenile was sitting up on the sill of a window of a car in motion shooting his gun. The shooter in this case was cited and his gun was seized.
