17-year old Missouri boy and friends shoot ice cream truck driver with BB gun in robbery attempt

An ice cream truck driver was making his rounds in Blue Springs, Missouri, when he was approached by four teen boys.  That's when 17-year old Isiah G. Etienne pulled out a BB gun he and his friends had just bought at Walmart and demanded cash from the driver.  The driver refused, so Isiah shot him multiple times with the BB gun in the face, neck, and arm.  He has since been arrested.

From an article:

According to court records, 47-year-old ice cream truck driver Patrick Schramke reported Tuesday afternoon being robbed and shot by three to four youth who were driving in a burgundy vehicle with a bungee cord holding a bumper together. 
Police say a group of youth had gone to Walmart and purchased a BB gun, which they were shooting in a park. When they saw an ice cream truck, police say they approached it, and according to police, the defendant pointed the BB gun at Schramke. 
When the Schramke wouldn’t turn over any money, authorities say Etienne shot the driver in the head, neck and arm with the BB gun. 
Schramke was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated and released.

Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
