Cobourg Police say they believe eight shots were fired from a pellet gun into the window of Pizza Pizza on Monday, September 25, 2023.
At approximately 5:45 a.m. unknown suspects shot “projectiles” from what is believed to be a pellet gun at the front window of the business which is located across from the Cobourg Police Service.
Seven of the projectiles went through the front window of the business, some struck the ceiling and continued on into the menu display which is over the front counter behind the cash register.
