Dude, You Shot Me

McHenry County teenager Brad Jacobs was shot by his friend in the leg with a pellet gun. Ouch! But of course a pellet is not a bullet and it wasn’t like he was shot in the heart or anything important. Or was it?

From the Sun-Times, “The pellet, it turns out, had entered a vein and traveled upward until it settled in the bottom of the right ventricle”. After accessing their options doctors were able to remove the pellet with a catheter and young Brad plans on returning to school this Wednesday.
