SAN DIEGO (CBS) — Police on Tuesday said a Southland boy is recovering after he was shot with a crossbow bolt after throwing rocks at a passing car outside his home. Officer Dino Delimitros told the Associated Press the boy and a friend were throwing the rocks outside his home in the Linda Vista neighborhood Monday afternoon when a passenger in a black Toyota RAV4 pulled out a crossbow and fired. The boy, whose name and age have not been released, was shot in the abdomen and taken to a local hospital, where he is expected to recover from his injuries. Police are still looking for the shooters and no arrests have been made. (H/T: iOwnTheWorld)

Addendum: I wasn’t sure how to classify this one, since I have a tag for gun stories but not for crossbows or other medieval weaponry. I might need to change that eventually, because it’s inevitable that some enterprising criminals will someday try to counter the Castle Doctrine by building siege engines.
