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.

Insane! It takes alot of practice to be proficient with
a blow gun. we had to make our darts & practice shooting
at cardboard boxes. These darts were used to tranquilize animals.

Cheers

Edit I didn't know you could order a blow gun until reading
the above ad.

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.

hope it was not some crazed HIV or HEP patient. Or any other biological agent in the hands of a terrorist.

It is worrying the lengths some folk will go to.

In school a chewed up piece of paper and a dismantled pen became a weapon. A rubber band, a folded piece of paper, a rubber band and your thumb and index finger could make a weapon. But that was just fun and that was more than a decade ago. Nowadays everything is a weapon because of these fools who improvise weapons for hate.

Doesn't the person have to be relatively close to hit their target with these blow guns, or are they fired using a dart gun? I thought since the increase in terrorism they installed cameras on the Golden Gate Bridge. I would think who ever did this would have been on the bridge at the time.

If criminals are going to shoot someone with an arrow why do they choose innocent people ? There are plenty who deserve it.

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

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.

Sounds like a couple of dumb teenagers just doing things dumb kids do for fun.
But it still has to hurt , say that you can blow a dart at 60 MPH then do it from a car moving at 60 MPH that dart is gonna hit you at least going 120 MPH. ...either way it's gonna hurt. And in Maryland you can buy a blow gun at Walmart.
You can shoot a red wire nut through a piece of half inch PVC and that will sting like a SOB. So I say it's kids being dumb and think it's funny to hurt people, notice that both people were hit in the leg .
If they were trying to kill someone the shots would have been higher up ....

After reading your post, I imagined contractors in California trying to build houses using Nerf bricks, after a law was passed banning regular bricks.
