Sounds like a couple of dumb teenagers just doing things dumb kids do for fun.
But it still has to hurt , say that you can blow a dart at 60 MPH then do it from a car moving at 60 MPH that dart is gonna hit you at least going 120 MPH. ...either way it's gonna hurt. And in Maryland you can buy a blow gun at Walmart.
You can shoot a red wire nut through a piece of half inch PVC and that will sting like a SOB. So I say it's kids being dumb and think it's funny to hurt people, notice that both people were hit in the leg .
If they were trying to kill someone the shots would have been higher up ....

Oh, right you are…
Its silent and potentially deadly, next… bb guns, then rocks, road flares, matches, rakes, shovels, axes, kitchen knives.
They should focus on the crime and criminal, not the brick.
After reading your post, I imagined contractors in California trying to build houses using Nerf bricks, after a law was passed banning regular bricks.

How do you know that the morons did not intend for the darts to sink so far into their victims skin, just wondering why you would assume that?
What if one of those darts hit someone in their eye, did the vermin consider that possibility?
Um no, these idiots don't deserve any benefit of the doubt, they deserve to be charged with assault with a deadly weapon. ~$heopleNation
I guess I was just going by my own experiences from the blowgun days of my youth. The blowguns I had just didn't seem very dangerous. I certainly never targeted any strangers, only my buddies, and the never inflicted much damage. It just sounds like something some jerkwad 19 year olds would do for craps n giggles, not intending to seriously injure but just scare someone with a little poke. But you're right. This is a serious mater and the perpetrators should be punished accordingly.
