ELKTON, Md. (WMAR) - A man is recovering after being shot by his best friend in a prank that went wrong.
Cecil County spokesperson Lt. Michael Holmes says deputies responded to the 600 block of Blue Ball Road in Elkton at about 2:00 a.m. Saturday morning.
Holmes says the victim in this case was a recent victim of a home burglary and was telling his friend about it and saying that he could easily be a victim as well and that he needed to better secure his home.
The victim went to his friends home early that morning to pull a prank on him, just to show him how unsafe his home was. The victim wiggled a door handle that lead to where his friend and his 9-year-old child were sitting inside.
The shooter quickly grabbed his 9-millimeter handgun and opened the door. The victim rushed inside the home and growled at his friend, at that point, the shooter shot his friend in the chest.

stupid SHOULD hurt
Roommate Alien Prank Goes Bad
Whenever someone is actively shooting at me, I always try to rush toward them while growling. It just seems like the smart thing to do.
“stupid SHOULD hurt”
The stupid shall be punished!
Observe the media bias:
The part of "The Victim" is played by the man who broke into someone's home.
The part of "The gun owner" is played by the guy who shot his friend.
It’s hard to imagine that a person thought this was a good idea, because he obviously planned it before he carried it out.
“I know Bubba has a pistol, and I know he has a 9 yr old child in the house; so I’m going to rattle the door handle to scare him - then I’m going to rush in and attack him”.
Sounds like a Darwin nominee.
This “victim” is why I oppose car seat, seat belt, helmet laws as well as any law that keeps people in the gene pool that mother nature is continually taking swipes at.
Lots of frustrated males living there, I guess?
There’s a stupid program on SyFi called “Scare Tactics” where people set up their friends to try and scare the hell out of them... It’s absolutely stupid and I’m just waiting for someone to get shot or have the snot beat out of them by the scared victim.
I watched the appalling Borat movie from a few years ago.
Will never see another movie from the guy, unless it includes a scene of the type you mention.
I’d pay quite a bit to see that.
Sounds like a disappointing address.
It's right across the street from the strip club.
Thank goodness the guy was only hurt and is recovering!
I watched a movie last night called “ The Complete History of My Sexual Failures “
It sort of reminded me of an even more pathetic version of Borat.
Biggest loser I have ever seen depicted on TV, and an hour plus of my life that I will never get back
