CHICAGO (CBS) — A Chicago activist who spends a lot of time on the streets trying to prevent violence is warning about people who target trick-or-treaters and their parents with paintball guns on Halloween.
Community activist Andrew Holmes said the people who fire paintball guns at trick-or-treaters think it’s funny, but the victims often end up in the hospital, because of injuries.
“They think it’s funny. They see them duck, they see them fall, they see them crying, them hollering, and they’re filming it. They think it’s a joke. It’s not a joke, this is very serious,” he said.
