According to a police news release from Cheshire England, a 19 year old was found guilty of attempted murder for an incident that occurred in October 2014.
According to the Detective in charge of the investigation:
Duggan’s actions that night were extreme and shocking – the victim went outside to speak to the group about the fact they had turned off the water supply resulting in the defendant shooting him with a powerful weapon.
Fortunately, the victim’s mobile phone took the brunt of the shot and, as a result of this, he survived. This is remarkable – had that phone not been in his pocket at that time he would undoubtedly have died.
