Paintball Pranksters Get Gunfire
PITTSBURGH-August 13, 2003 — Two teens who drove around Pittsburgh shooting passers-by with paintball guns were shot with real bullets for apparently targeting the wrong group, police said.
Tracey Smedley, 19, was treated at UPMC Presbyterian hospital's emergency room and released Tuesday, said spokeswoman Jocelyn Uhl. She could not provide a condition for an unidentified 17-year-old.

Smedley, the 17-year-old and an 18-year-old man drove around a city neighborhood armed with paintball guns and wearing helmets and paintball vests, Pittsburgh police Lt. Philip Dacey said.

During their drive, the teens pelted children at a playground and shot at another group down the street, Dacey said.

When the teens turned around to tell the group on the street they were only shooting paintballs, someone returned fire with a gun, peppering the driver's side of the car with more than a dozen bullets, Dacey said.

Smedley was shot in the left arm, while the 17-year-old was hit in the buttocks. The teens then drove themselves to the hospital, Dacey said.

i hate the media and i hate stupid people.

first the media, "helmets" and "paintball vests" make the sport sound violent and sh** like football. "armed" with paintball guns... haha.

They got what they f****** deserve. They should of been shot more.

I read something of like that a year ago two kids were in the back of a truck with a campershell and they went around one was shot in the forehead and he was calm and able to walk into the firestation they walked into...
the one that was shot in the head lived but the other was shot right in the chest and died later in the hospital..

sorry don't know the date or where it happened at

I'm kindof' heads or tails of weather or not they deserved it. Sure they were assholes, but the guy who got shot in the asscheeks....That's just plain funnny.
Reminds me of Forrest Gump when Gump's running in Vietman, get's shot in the ass and screams "OW! SOMETHING BIT ME!"

:D

HAHA, YEAH! TWO PEOPLE ALMOST DIED! THAT'S AWESOME.

one of the staggering situations where so-called handgun crime deturrance backfires drastically.

Now, if a paintball gun is technically a firearm (which it is), do we have a constitutional right to own them?
