Chuck E. Cheese gives the "all clear" after shots fired.
Police were called to a Columbia, Missouri, Chuck E. Cheese at 7 p.m. Sunday night after someone fired at least a half-dozen shots at the rodent-themed children's paradise. Police found six to eight shell casings and three bullet holes in the building. Really, Columbia?
Police have footage from a security cam that shows what they claim is the probable target of the shooting "ducking and running" as the gunman opens fire -- he was not hit, and neither were any of the people in the restaurant.
Police also suspect the incident is related to a string of shootings that have recently taken place in Columbia, including one that happened just last week in front of the Boone Tavern
Which raises the question, just how stupid are the two parties involved
in this? The shooter seems to be following his man but can't put a shot
into him to save his own life, and the target knows he's being stalked
but keeps going to public places -- like children's restaurants, for
example -- despite knowing that every time he sticks his head out it
starts hailing bullets.
Maybe these two jokers could agree to
meet somewhere outside the city and blast away at each other till either
of 'em hits something or runs out of bullets.
