Elm Street resident’s truck damaged by paintball attack

DUNCAN — Duncan Police Department is investigating a vandalism incident, where someone used a paintball gun to shoot orange paint at a Duncan resident’s pickup truck.

Officer Nathan Carrio was dispatched to the truck owner’s home in the 1300 block of West Elm for a vandalism report. The incident took place about 10:45 p.m. Monday.

“(The truck owner) was sitting on his front porch when he saw an early ’90s GMC/Chevy pickup with a thick red line down the entire side drive by,” Carrio wrote in his report.

“An occupant used a paintball gun to shoot orange colored paint at (the owner’s) pickup that was parked in front of his residence. I observed the orange paint splatter on the driver’s side back part of the cab. The suspect vehicle left and turned south on 14th.”

The truck owner was unable to supply a suspect description to Carrio for the report.

  • Could lethal inject furor return the firing squad?

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The disarray surrounding lethal injection in the U.S. is beginning to steer states back toward methods of execution that many had long ago deemed less humane than the needle.

    Tennessee jumped out front this week with a law that could essentially bring back the electric chair. Elsewhere around the country, lawmakers have been talking about reviving the firing squad and the gas chamber, methods largely abandoned a generation ago.

    The reason: Lethal injection — the primary means of execution in all 32 states with capital punishment — is under fire as never before because of botched executions, drug shortages caused by a European-led boycott, and a flurry of lawsuits over the new chemicals that states are using instead.
