Man surrenders in 'reckless' shooting of pregnant woman




A man around Pittsburgh was shooting in his gun into the air for fun said a police officer. But where those shots were going made the difference. One and a half miles away one of the bullets landed into a pregnant motorist on the back of a motorcycle. she was injured but no serious injury or death.

www.pittsburghlive.com...

found it just by using Pittsburg shooting air typed at google.


what an idiot that guy who shot in the air, he should get the same punishment he would have gotten if she died, I am glad she survived.

I watched an episode of Mythbusters and they tested the theory of shooting into the air and if it would kill when the bullet landed... the result was no... it would hardly break the skin.

You might want to watch that segment again.

They said the bullet would not be harmful -only- if it was shot exactly vertical. If it went up parabolically, it had enough energy remaining to be harmful on the way down.

& there have been recorded cases of people being killed by bullets fired randomly into the air.
