    Police in Brockton, Massachusetts, are looking for a black Acura as they investigate a string of paintball shootings.

    A 12-year-old boy was one of two people injured Monday by paintball gun shootings in Brockton.

    Cody Hiltz, who is wearing a patch over his eye as doctors evaluate the damage, said he initially thought he was shot with a real gun.

    "I thought it was a real gun at first, so I started screaming as loud as I could," Hiltz said.
