Authorities: Boy shot while trying to burn Gorham home
If you remember, Gorham has had more than their share of arsons lately.
Gorham Police said today that the male teen is being treated for what they believe to be non-life threatening injuries after being shot at a residence at 8 Mountview Drive. Police said the homeowner and a witness interrupted the teen as he attempted to set a fire at the home, which was occupied at the time. Police did not specify who shot the juvenile.
Oh, oh, the homeowner must be one of those right wing patriotic wackos. I don't understand why the paper felt the need to add the following.
At 8 Mountview Drive, a black sport utility vehicle with a National Rifle Association sticker was parked in the driveway. A basketball hoop was set up, and the Bassingthwaites displayed an American flag.
