A storefront window for a Long Beach restaurant was allegedly pelted with BB gun bullets Monday at 9:20AM, causing minor damage to two windows but no injuries,  Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) spokeswoman Nancy Pratt said. 

One window sustained at least one bullet hole while another window sustained a crack, an employee for the restaurant El Torazo Mexican Food said over the phone Tuesday. 

Police said they do not have information regarding a possible suspect or suspects, and the investigation is ongoing.

The shooting is yet another in a growing list of BB gun-related incidents in the city since the beginning of the year.
