Man shoots at bulletproof glass; finds out it works and is injured

The Associated Press

LYMAN, Skagit County — A Brier man found out what happens when you shoot bulletproof glass after he tried it near Lyman.

Shotgun pellets ricocheted and hit him in the face, arm and stomach.

Skagit County sheriff’s Chief Criminal Deputy Tom Molitor told the Skagit Valley Herald the injuries to the 21-year-old from Brier were superficial and he declined medical aid.

Deputies and fire department medics responded Monday to a pit where two men were shooting at the piece of ballistic glass. The other man was not hit.
