For some reason after reading the title and the first part of the article, I just wasn't expecting to read "bb gun".

Man Shot 3 Times Claims He Was Gunned Down Over Pro-Obama Shirt

A British man who was shot three times on a London street claims the gunman was enraged over his Barack Obama T-shirt, the Daily Mail reported Tuesday.

Dube Egwuatu told the Mail he was purchasing a cell phone when a stranger started shouting racial slurs over his shirt featuring the presidential candidate’s face and the word “Believe.”

Egwuatu zipped up his jacket and headed for his car, but as he turned it on, the gunman opened the passenger side door and shot him three times, hitting him in the face, hand and shoulder.

Egwuatu managed to drive off while bleeding and call for help. A piece of metal was removed from his jaw from the attacker’s gas-powered ball-bearing pistol, the Mail reported.

“He was telling me that he was going to kill me,” Egwuatu told the Mail. “I couldn't believe it was happening — and just because I was wearing an Obama T-shirt. He was trying to make me walk somewhere quieter, saying: ‘I've got something for you,’ and ‘I'm going to kill you.’”

Local police are still looking for the gunman.


I should have lnown it couldn't be a real gun... it happened in jolly ol' England! They are allowed to have real guns. :D

"gas powered ball-bearing pistol"

Aren't those called paintball guns? A far stretch from being "gunned down"

What a bunch of idiots... the shooter, and the shootee.

In the 1980s, I had an uncle in Denmark with a pump pellet gun that shot a projectile the size of a tylenol caplet. It was shaped like it too.

He shot out the back window, and the round went thru a layer of corregated metal. It was really kewl. He was in the merchant marine, and picked it up at some foreign country.

No telling what kinda gun that was. Who knows.

The British need to grow some balls. It's a fricken BB gun. All parties involved (including the reporter for reporting on this in this way) are idiots!

What's next, person stabbed by sharp stick? Or a person received paper cuts by gang members trying to steal their wallet?
