Teen paintball shooting victim speaks out

LOWER ALSACE TWP., Pa. -A paintball shooting almost cost a 13-year-old boy his eyesight.

Jared Shaffer said he considers himself lucky. He was out with friends Monday afternoon when he suddenly found himself under attack, Shaffer said.

"Next thing I know I'm on the ground holding my eye, and I didn't know what I had got hit by or anything," said Shaffer.

Investigators said the paint ball shooting happened around 1:45 p.m. near a wooded area at Harvey Avenue and Butter Lane in Exeter Twp., Berks Co.

"I ran out of the woods screaming, 'I'm blind.'"

Luckily, Shaffer still has his sight, but it was still a close call.

Police photographs taken just after the incident show how white paint was still lodged in the corner of Shaffer's swollen left eye.

The Antietam Middle-Senior High School student said he couldn't see who the shooter was, but remembers a black shiny vehicle approaching.

"It gets me mad and upset," said Shaffer, "because when they drove off, all I heard was, 'Oh good! I hit him,' or something like that. I heard them laughing and stuff."

Doctors have prescribed several medications for Shaffer's eye. He said he is expected to make a full recovery.

In the meantime, Exeter police said they are looking for four teenagers who were driving a shiny black SUV-type vehicle.

I remember walking home from school one time in high school, and a group of assholes drove by and shot me with high powered air rifles (pellet guns). If one of those fuckers had hit me in the eye, I woulda hunted em down and destroyed them. I was pissed.

Why?Why do stupid people make a terrible reputation for paintball?No wonder my friends parents wont allow him to play paintball.People this is not getting more people into the sport.This is why paintball is dying and has such a terrible reputation.When my dad mentions paintball to adults they dont think of the PSP,NPPL,or playing in tournaments.They think of this crap.If you want paintball to continue we need to stop these people.

Stuff like this isn't killing paintball, it's just giving it a bad reputation. I'm willing to bet that the people who shot him weren't actual players but just some asshole who went to walmart to buy something they can shoot people with. And unfortunately those are the people who get paintball any mainstream attention. Because of this paintball will probably never be a widely accepted sport, or hobby or game or whatever you want to call it. So if you don't want paintball to "die" then you have to get actively involved in bringing new people into it, because the news will only ever show the negative. No one likes news about a bunch of people with toy guns who have a safe fun time.

It doesn't sound like he took of his mask but more like he was hanging out and someone drove up and shot him

I don't get why parents can't watch there kids, because the kids that shot him were looking for trouble and i hope that they got it, because only a low life douche bag would go out in a car with his friends trying to shoot people. Like if you see your kid and his friends walking out to their car with a paintball gun then somethings up; don't you think?
