An 'oh that's alright then' story from 6Days:
Shooting ‘an accident’
Published on: Tuesday, 30th May, 2006
The teenager accused of shooting at a man who told him off did so by accident, according to a source close to the family. Gulzar Zain claims the 19-year-old Briton shot at his car with an air rifle after he told off the teen for driving recklessly near Safa Park. But a family friend told 7DAYS last night there had been no confrontation, and that the shooting was an accident.
“They were shooting at tin cans,” he said. “One went through the can… this guy was driving by and the pellet hit his rear passenger window.” The man claims the teenager offered to pay for the damage, but that Zain “went crazy” and insisted on calling the police. But Zain insisted last night that the shooting was deliberate.
He said he had spoken to the teenager several times over the previous few days about his behaviour, but admitted that he hadn’t spoken to him on Thursday, the day of the shooting incident. It’s understood the teenager was in Dubai on holiday, and had planned to leave in the next few days. He is currently out on bail. “He’s a really nice kid,” said the source.
A classic line that's worth repeating...“They were shooting at tin cans,” he said. “One went through the can… this guy was driving by and the pellet hit his rear passenger window.”
An air-gun pellet went right through a tin can, carried on its trajectory, didn't lose velocity, punched a hole in the window of a passing car. Yeah, right.
