Boy throws rocks at cars, shot by crossbow

By the headline, I wasn’t sure if the boy was shot, or if he was shooting rocks by cross-bow.
Who the fuck has a cross-bow at hand for opportune moments?
Once, my uncle, my brother and I, were tossing grapes out at cars on a busy street. We tossed one out on a Cadillac. The fucker driving was MAD. (As well he should have been.) He went around the block to see us again. We high-tailed it to Grandmother’s and Granddad’s apartment to get out of the heat.
I still think of it as pre-teen stupidity. It could have been rocks and more dangerous. Had we been more malicious.
It was always snowballs for us, sneakily off an overpass where the railroad ran years and years ago. They finally took that down, which is only a small inconvenience to area adolescents causing mayhem.
Also: “Nobody has been arrested.” I don’t know if that’s a yep or a no shit.
Rick, was it the uncle who was your age?
