Hey, remember those mysterious darts shot into the legs of multiple Golden Gate Bridge pedestrians last Friday? Well, they just got even more mysterious, as the shooter somehow managed to evade the tourist hot spot's multiple security cameras.
You remember the story, right? In short, a pedestrian flagged a bicycle patrol officer down on the bridge at 2:45 p.m. Friday, saying that as he walked north he was hit in the thigh by a long metal dart. As he was talking to the cops, a woman walked up with another dart that she says hit her in the knee.
The darts, which police say were shot from a blow gun, weren't poisoned, and both victims were treated at the scene and released.
California Highway Patrol investigators said that they believed the darts were launched from a car driving northbound on the bridge, and were seeking surveillance video to unmask the blower(s). But it appears there's no relevant video to be found, as Bay City News is reporting that "neither of the incidents were captured on film."
According to the Chron, the CHP is now asking the California Department of Justice, "which is testing the darts, to see if DNA can be lifted from the darts in hopes of tracking down a potential suspect."
According to the CHP, each dart had a metal body approximately five inches long with one end sharpened to a fine point.
The tail of each dart was topped with a white plastic cap, the type that would allow it to be shot from a blow gun, the CHP said on Saturday.
