Lately, we've been receiving calls about people shooting paint-ball guns at pedestrians from their cars. If any of you think this is no big deal since it's not a "real" gun; think again. I've been called to a few different scenes to take pictures of these idiots and the damage they've caused. Their night of fun turned into felony charges of aggravated assault and criminal damage.
Then, there was the real duo of geniouses that bought a BB gun from Walmart and decided it would be a good idea to test it out on citizens walking in the parking lot. They shot a woman in the arm and a man in the back of the head and then sped away in their mom's minivan . If you're going to shoot at people with a very realistic looking handgun, you probably shouldn't do it in a crowded parking lot with dozens of cell phone carriers and a police helicopter already overhead for an unrelated call. The pair was quickly caught and booked for aggravated assault.
I'm just waiting for the night one of these fools points a toy gun at the wrong citizen who happens to be carrying a real gun.
