He Played Too Much Angry Birds

“A Colorado man who shot a woman in the head after mistaking her red Mohawk hairdo for a bird has been placed on probation, authorities say.”

“Rockwell, who was banned from owning a gun for a 1995 attempted burglary conviction, told police he had gone outside with his .22-caliber rifle Oct. 5 to shoot a bird that had been harassing his cats. He shot once at what he thought was a red bird on a hilltop about 90 feet away, then heard a woman moaning in pain. He discovered a 23-year-old woman with a head wound.”

    And one can only wonder WHY did he have a gun… sigh…

    “Deputy District Attorney Jason Conley told the presiding judge the woman may have been passed out from intoxication prior to being shot. He said investigator found a small bag of suspected methamphetamine nearby.”

    Sounds like a great corner of Mesa County. Previous offender shooting at non-game (thus federally protected) bird and hitting his neighbor, then apparently dumping her at the ER. (I was reading some of the other coverage after seeing yours.)
