Two males riding black e-bikes fled Saturday after shooting somebody at UC San Diego with a pellet gun.

Investigators released photos of the two suspects, only one of which fired on the victim shortly after 3:20 p.m. on Aug. 28 in La Jolla. Campus cameras captured the pair after they rode onto campus from North Torrey Pines Road at Muir Lane.

The bikers headed east across campus to the intersection of Hopkins and Voight drives, where one of the males drew a light-colored BB-gun pistol and fired at the victim, striking them multiple times.
