    Boy Accidentally Shoots Man in Outhouse

    VERSHIRE, Vt. (AP) -- A Massachusetts man was shot while using the outhouse at his family's camp by a boy who was target shooting.

    Chris Flanagan, 41, of Holliston, Mass., was standing in the outhouse on Saturday morning when he was hit in the chest by a bullet that came through the door.

    Police said the shot was fired from a .22-caliber rifle used by a young relative. They declined to give the relationship between the two.

    Police were investigating whether the boy, who was not identified because he is a minor, had missed his target or intentionally shot at the outhouse.

    Police said the boy was not aware that Flanagan was inside the outhouse.

    Flanagan was in fair condition Tuesday at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H.

    I wonder if the target was tacked to the door BEFORE he went in. :D

    Are they sure they have the right suspect? They need to eliminate everyone else before they finish up the paperwork and drop the investigation from their caseload. There may have been other movement in the area before the bullet whizzed through the door.

    You have to admit that getting shot while in the outhouse is a pretty crappy time to get shot, not that there is a good time.:uhoh:

    4.) Spamming, trolling, flaming, and personal attacks are prohibited. You can disagree with other members, even vehemently, but it must be done in a well-mannered form. Attack the argument, not the arguer.


    I don't read punning anywhere

    Rule #4 is: Be sure of your target and what is behind it.


    (with special emphasis on behind in this case ;) )

    That says nothing about what's in your target. I'm not sure to whom that rule applies -- the shooter or the shoer.

    In California, it is a criminal act to discharge a firearm within 150 yards of an occupied building -- particularly TOWARDS the building. (For some reason it's not a crime to discharge a .300 Wby as long as you're over 150 yards away; small comfort if you've ever shot one of those things.)

    So, here the kid would be charged with a crime. His only possible defense was that the door handle did not function properly, so he didn't know it was "Occupied."

    I doubt anyone would want to be down there after a visitor enjoyed a bunch of my BBQ brisket and a keg of beer. :what: :what:
