BOONSBORO, Md. (AP) — A teenager in western Maryland is accused of shooting at a couple with paintball guns.

Boonsboro police say 18-year-old Rockey Weston Rutherford of Keedysville faces charges of assault, reckless endangerment, malicious destruction of property and disturbing the peace.

Police say a Boonsboro couple heard a knock at their door on the night of Dec. 12 and, upon answering, were shot multiple times with paintball guns by five teenagers. The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown reports that police later stopped a car driven by Rutherford, and found paintball and soft pellet guns inside.

Police say the other teenagers were referred to Juvenile Services, and that they’re investigating similar incidents.

    The sad thing is they are not kids – pathetic, people their age have been to middle east and Asia in real conflicts. Pathetic!

    This is why we need a draft for the military to get these “young adults”to locations which attempt to teach them responsibility and discipline since their parents seem to don’t have the stomach for it.
