Woman shot multiple times with BB gun

JEFFERSON COUNTY - Stitches, bruises, and BB's literally all over her body...41-year-old Liza Garcia is grateful to be alive. "I passed out and when I woke up...they were gone." Said Garcia.

The mother of eight was walking on Avenue C on College Street on September 5th when she got in the car with three men she did not know.

Deputies say they took her to the 5000 block of Highland Avenue near Highway 69 and attacked her using a BB gun. 

"I'm suffering and I can't breathe. It hurts. The BB's hurt a lot and I want them out." Garcia told 12News. Earlier this month, Beaumont police say another man was shot in the head by a BB gun on Calder Avenue.

This is the second BB gun attack this month and investigators say both cases are connected.

"Because the BB gun can possibly cause bodily injury or even death, it is considered a deadly weapon." Said Marcus McLellan with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.

According to the CPSC Safety Alert, High-velocity BB guns which have muzzle velocities higher than 350 feet per second.

Garcia says she is recovering by resting at home and tells 12News the BB's will naturally come out of skin with time.
