Hasidic teens shot with paintballs in Brooklyn 

Two Hasidic teens were shot with paintballs in an achievable hate crime in Brooklyn, the second attack of its type in a week, police mentioned Sunday.

The two 13-year-olds were with their grandfather on Morton St. near Juliana Pl. in Williamsburg when 1 was hit in the ankle and the other in the thigh and arm by the paintballs at 9:50 p.m. Saturday, cops stated.
Neither boy was seriously injured.

On March 22, a 37-year-old Hasidic man was blasted in the beard by a paintball as he walked on Kent Ave. near Hewes St. on his way to synagogue about 7:30 p.m., police said.

Cops were investigating both attacks as possible cases of paintball persecution, but it was not quickly clear if they had been linked, police mentioned.
