McMinnville police said the high school student said the dart struck him, as an older, small, blue pickup truck with horizontal lines running along the side panels behind the doors passed him.

The teen’s family turned the 3 ½-inch-long dart over to police.

Anyone with information concerning the suspect vehicle is asked to contact Officer Sherry McCuistion at 503.434.7307 and reference case number 14-03842.

The case remains under investigation at this time.
