The kids were part of a group tossing snowballs at cars in Milwaukee on Saturday night when they became the targets of the violent road rage attack, police said in a series of tweets.


“It was like ‘boom, boom, boom, boom’ all in succession,” Pearlee Piggue, who heard the shooting just before 8 p.m., told local station WITI.

Milwaukee police described the shooter as driving a white Toyota. Both of the victims suffered non-life-threatening gunshot wounds, police said.

After firing into the group of children, the shooter fled the Silver Spring neighborhood in a white Toyota, police said.

A 12-year-old female and a 13-year-old male were taken to a local hospital for non-life-threatening gunshot wounds, police said.

Just the way Trump would have done it, disproportionately. Only with Butthead Jr's AR-15.

1. I am not going to defend resorting to gunfire, BUT....

throwing snowballs at cars is really dangerous.

WTF is wrong with people on both sides of this???

4. But shooting a 12 and 13 year old? No need at all to do it.

5. Of course not. I can't possibly defend that.

But throwing objects at moving cars can also lead to people losing their lives. It happens. So I can't understand why kids that old would do such a thing.

2. And I just got arrested

I got arrested for pegging the same car 3 times when I was 9. But no one ever opened fire on us.

This is some serious overreacting.
