FULLERTON (CBS) A 25-year-old man who showed up at a hospital emergency room with birdshot wounds was arrested after police determined he had allegedly threatened the man who shot him, Fullerton police said Sunday.
Isaac Chavez was jailed for suspicion of criminal threat, assault with a deadly weapon and a parole violation, police said.
Chavez a resident of Artesia had apparently been hit with the non-lethal shotgun blast when he showed up on the front porch of a Fullerton home, police said.
A man called police to say he had shot Chavez with a shotgun at 3:11 p.m. Saturday at a home in the 1800 block of Page Avenue. The caller said Chavez had been threatening him earlier in the day, then showed up at his house with a gun.
Birdshot is a very small metal powder that creates a cloud of projectiles when fired from a large shotgun.
After being treated at the Lakewood Regional Medical Centers emergency room, Chavez was booked at the Fullerton Police Department jail and then transferred to the Orange County Jail.
Or a Taurus Judge.
Or a 22LR.
(LOL powder, my ass....)
Yeah, lol about it being powder...
You beat me to it. That’s the dumbest thing I’ve read in a while. A damn Google search turns up more than that.
“Birdshot is a very small metal powder that creates a cloud of projectiles when fired from a large shotgun.”
That description just hurt my head.
Someone sober please post the image of the media’s understanding of an AK-47.
It’ll shoot your eye out....
Beaner shows up on my porch at 3pm Saturday without a leaf blower is gonna get shot by me also......
Grew up in small rural farming community and the farmers used to shoot the kids with rock salt the ones that dragged raced through the fields and orchards......not that I would know or anything.
To set the stage:
My kids live on a cul-de-sac in a quiet, fairly rural area. Their next-door neighbor is selling their house, and the husband works nights. Between 3 and 4 am in the morning when the husband was working (no vehicle in the driveway), a car drove into and around the cul-de-sac, looking around (casing). Guess they noticed the dark house with the For Sale sign and no car in the driveway, so came back after a few minutes. The next thing the wife knew, someone was walking around their house, knocking heavily on the windows and back door. She called 911 and (I guess) made some noise that scared off the intruder. Needless to say, this has been a wake up call for a lot of these folks. I had been preaching to my kids about how "hunters from the hood" have been moving into rural areas to "expand their terror-itory", and this even helped highlight that fact. Especially now with several high-profile B&E's that have ended with perps being blown away, point is being driven home...
Just another reminder of the current news from your friendly neighborhood Scot...
