Boy shot with crossbow for throwing rocks at cars

Illustration for article titled Boy shot with crossbow for throwing rocks at cars

Street justice, extraordinary overkill edition: A boy throwing rocks at cars took a crossbow bolt to the belly yesterday, apparently as retribution for throwing a rock at a Toyota RAV4. The RAV4 had several passengers, one of whom literally went medieval on him, pulling out a crossbow and shooting the kid right then and there. Funny, I would have taken Goliath for more of a Chevrolet kind of guy.


The injured child is being treated for "injuries that were not considered life threatening" at a Children's Hospital in San Diego.

Moral of the story: Do not throw rocks at cars are large enough to carry medieval artilleries. I mean, you shouldn't throw rocks at any cars, but especially not the big ones, y'know? [AP, SignOnSanDiego, images via Shutterstock]
