Victim Relives Random Paintball Attack

HENDERSON, Nev. -- Days after three teens were arrested for a violent paintball spree, victims are sharing their story. The attacks happened throughout the month of December at random places and at close range.

One of the attacks happened at the Henderson Plaza near Boulder Highway and Lake Mead Parkway. It is fairly small shopping center with only a handful of stores, and where 73-year-old Fred Honore was walking to his car, unaware of what would happen as he was unloading groceries.

He was loading jugs of water in his car when Honore heard several shots.

"These kids kind of pulled up kind of slow. I didn't really pay much attention to them. I turned to look at them and then they fired this pistol at me," she said.

He felt a stinging sensation in his chest. Thankfully, his girlfriend was with him and called 911. A few inches in the other direction and Honore says the paintball gun could have killed him.
