Teenager shot in Downer

By Thumper - 29 November 2007 29

The SMH is reporting that a 16 year old has been shot in the hip by a 63 year old man in Downer at 2.30 yesterday.

Officers searched the older man’s home last night and allegedly found two unauthorised firearms and a large amount of ammunition and the man is due to face the ACT Magistrates Court today.

yeah i know this kid, goes to my school, my freinds say he was drunk and running away from the cops with his freinds do he hid in the old guys backyard, apparently he was so drunk he didnt feel the pain from the bullet that much and thought it was an airrifle

I hear suspended sentences are on special for the end of 2007.

Thanks for that great advice Skiddy.

It must be a great comfort to the victim to only have been “allegedly” shot.

Remember to pepper your comments with ‘allegedly’ around the word ‘shot’, ‘firearms’, and ‘ammunition’, ‘attempted break-in\trespass\burglary’, etc.

Nobody has yet been convicted, all we have is the AFP media release and a SMH article.

perhaps the old man prematurely shot his load when he drew his pistol from its holster while thinking he was a cowboy…

Well, considering the accused male’s age he may have been having flashbacks if he was a Vietnam Vet: and what he thought he saw was a VC sapper about to blow up his clothes line up with a demolition charge.

You know it makes sense.

Thankyou Mr. Evil. I needed that. I really did.

Looking for Charlie on the trails around Phouc Tuy?
