    8-Year-Old Dallas Boy Shot In The Face CBS Dallas / Fort Worth

    Basically this coward shot an 8yo boy in the face, can't wait to hear his reason. Held on $2.2million bail.

    They are charging him with injury to a child instead of attempted murder, Injury to a child huh? How bout both?

    Not much to this story as to why he perpetrated this. Picture of him not flattering, and makes him look mentally ill.

    The comment section of the article have people spouting a different reason : racism.

    Zero details. Kid got shot. But, no indication of intention, proximity, even aiming at the kid specifically. Might well have happened from 50yds away, for all the details indicate. Apparently, some neighbors are claiming this same guy brandished against a man the prior day. Might well be that the explanation for the "injury" charge (instead of attempted murder) is because they haven't yet determined he targeted the child. Can't imagine why a fully-grown adult would feel threatened in the least by a 3rd grade child playing with toys. No way to tell, at this point. Bad for the kid and his family, though.

    Officials are interviewing witnesses to try and determine a possible motive for the shooting. Maiden’s family members said that the suspect had pointed a gun at the apartment complex maintenance man earlier on Tuesday.
    So if he pointed a gun at a maintenance worker earlier why wasn't it reported,may have prevented the shooting

    There would have to be evidence that the shooter was attempting to murder the child other than just the shooting itself. Additional charges may be pending, depending on the results of the investigation. It would not be prudent to slap on charges without clear evidence (Remember the Z case).

    Not many details raises a lot of questions. As the saying goes Who, what, when, where, and WHY?

    How tall are 8yo kids?

    How many kids just randomly get shot in the face by an adult?

    Dude didn't even live in the complex.

    It's a terrible story, and i'd love to see more details in this. The man may or not have even been involved. He was in the area, from what I gathered. So what..

    Scroll down to the comments and theres a guy called NWA saying

    "the devil is white. know what youre looking at when you see their faces." and alot of people are eating it up, talking about race war and etc.

    Bring the popcorn.

    I cant see why he isnt charged with the attempt to murder. He fired two shots, that would show the intent. Sometimes the police and prosicutors wull charge the lowest charge only to buy them time to complete a more detailed investigation. Then the full weight of the more serious charges are presented to the grand jury.

    His motive may vary well have been racism. Or he may be mentally ill. I dont think anyone of any race condones this guys actions. The comments are people who have nothing to do with anything other than having an opinion.

    The shooter fired twice... I'd think that pretty much rules out an accident.

    True, from the standpoint of pulling the trigger. But that alone doesn't make a shooting into attempted murder. With so little details published, at this point, it's hard to claim the charges need to be toughened. Am assuming the DA/police know elements we don't.
