Some parents want to keep their children happy by occasionally agreeing to some unrealistic requests. Most parents, unlike this dullard, would not agree to a paintball drive-by.
A 10-year-old Miami boy was shot after his father took him on a faux drive-by shooting with a paintball gun — and a frightened homeowner returned fire with real bullets.
Michael Williams, 26, allegedly gave in to his son’s pleas late Sunday to take him on a paintball “drive-by shooting,” where police said the boy fired off the unlethal rounds into a crowd gathered in the front yard of an Opa-locka home.
But the homeowner, identified as Gregory Barns, thought the gunfire was real and that “he and his family were under attack” — leading him to return fire with a real round, striking the boy.
Well, I guess it couldn’t get worse, right?
The youngster, who was not publicly identified, was then run over by his father’s van after being shot and losing his balance.
I stand corrected.
