Video Surveillance on Golden Gate Bridge Fails to Capture Footage of Blowgun Attacks

Two victims were shot by metal darts on Friday afternoon while walking on the bridge.

SAN FRANCISCO — Video surveillance cameras on the Golden Gate Bridge did not capture footage of two pedestrians being shot by blowgun darts in the middle of the afternoon, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP).

SF Gate reports the CHP reviewed the security footage from the bridge but could not spot the two separate incidents of pedestrians being hit by the medal darts.

The first victim stopped a CHP officer on the bridge just before 3 p.m. on Friday after being hit in the thigh by the dart. While the first victim was being attended to, a second approached saying she had been hit by a dart in the knee.

No possible suspects or vehicles were caught on camera.
