EUREKA, Calif. – Police arrested a suspect who allegedly shot a man using a shotgun shell packed with breakfast cereal.
Officers in the northern California city of Eureka responded to reports of “shots fired” and at least one person with a gunshot wound around 3:25 p.m. Wednesday.
The victim, who had suffered an injury to the hand that was not life-threatening was treated at a nearby hospital, police said.
Detectives caught up with the suspected shooter, 29-year-old Timothy Glass Jr., after he fled to Palco Marsh, site of a large homeless encampment, according to KRCR-TV. Police say one detective suffered a minor injury during the arrest.
An investigation later determined that Glass used a flare gun to fire the shell, which had been stuffed with Rice Krispies.
