One injured in apartment 'shooting'

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Police and ambulances quickly converged on a small apartment building next to Hiler's Texaco on North 2nd East Street late Monday afternoon after authorities received a call concerning a man accidentally shot in the neck.

When police arrived they met with Gregory Smith, 57, of Mountain Home, who said that he and his friends were shooting with a BB gun at a target in the apartment when one of the BBs ricocheted, striking the victim.

  • I hope the 911 call was less informative than this article. I was walking by the residence when all the responders arrived. Two patrol vehicles, ambulance,three or four unmarked vehicles and another county vehicle.The victim walked to the ambulance. All for a BB gun, unbelievable.

  • gmoney-

    BB guns can kill. Google "BB GUN DEATHS". I see 5 different deaths on the first page alone. All calls are taken seriously by our first responders here.
