The California Highway Patrol said an officer patrolling the bridge on a bicycle was flagged down Friday by a man who had been hit in the leg. The 5-inch long dart had sunk about two inches into the man’s skin, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Officials said that as emergency personnel were speaking with the man, a woman approached them and said she had been hit by an identical blow dart in the knee. Both were evaluated by paramedics and released at the scene.
The CHP took both darts as evidence and will have them tested for harmful chemicals, according to the paper. Officers are looking for surveillance video of the attacks.
it is possible they used a compressed gas cylinder of some sort in that case. nothing says it had to be a standard blow gun tube.

The dart they used is rather harmless unless perfect shot placement is made and it's a ss needle esentaly so if it was diped in poison not a lot would stay on
I'm not even shure how intentional this was since they make darts for hunting with a broad head on it thoes are practise darts with little mass they rarly get past the skin

Oh, right you are…
Its silent and potentially deadly, next… bb guns, then rocks, road flares, matches, rakes, shovels, axes, kitchen knives.
They should focus on the crime and criminal, not the brick.
