There has been a spate of paintball and airgun attacks around Christchurch.
Police say pedestrians, cyclists, bus shelters and parked cars have been targeted.
Constable Miriam Erber says the attacks have taken place all over the city, Riccarton, Ferry Road and Lincoln Road.
"It has happened previously in Christchurch. This occasion we were lucky enough that we had a number of informants who were extremely helpful to the police and assisted us in locating the vehicle.''
Constable Erber says police believe the car the shooters were driving around in is a black sedan.
