ATV struck by bullet while being riden off Wortendyke Road
An ATV was reportedly struck by a bullet from a high-powered rifle while it was being driven near the railroad tracks off Wortendyke Road in the Town of Batavia. A caller who lives on Wortendyke reported seeing the shooter running toward a nearby trailer park. Law enforcement is attempting to locate the shooter.
UPDATE 4:43 p.m.: Deputies have located the suspect and are speaking with him now.
Seriously? Someone actually shot at a person on an ATV? I can't wait for the rest of the story.
Be interesting to see the final outcome, whether thios was a stupid careless accident, or an intentional act.
If it was accidental, it's still better to see if the person on the ATV is okay and to take responsibility than to run. I don't understand the running part. Even if the shooting was accidental and the shooter was a convicted felon who isn't supposed to touch a gun, it's better to stand still and take their lumps. Running just makes it worse.
Nothing else was heard about this matter over the scanner. If there's a report or we learn of any new development, we will post it.
Doug, that would be assuming that it was an adult or an otherwise rational person
Lol Mark..that's so true.
