Who carries a rock in their car? Sounds like they were trying to find some thing/one to throw it at and picked the wrong target.

So the cops say a single shot was fired, but screaming mamma claims the guy hunted her child down and tried to murder him through the streets of El Paso.  
I HIGHLY doubt the kid was hit with a bullet.  I bet it was part of the crash.  What kind of civil protections do you guys in TX have when it comes to public self-defense?  Any?  
If not, it sounds like mamma smells a payday because junior busted his lip in a crash after a gun was fired.

Mah bebbeh din't do nuffin'!

Boy, Mommy was really playing up the 'My Baby Didn't do 'nuffin' wasn't she?

I'll bet his busted lip came when they crashed the car.

Mall shooting: Man says he fired in self defense

LAS CRUCES NM - A man who shot a 20-year-old in the buttocks at the Mesilla Valley Mall is not expected to face criminal charges for what Las Cruces police say was a single act of self-defense.

But the mother of a 17-year-old who was also involved in the Wednesday evening altercation said her son was also a victim of the man's gunfire as he tore through the streets around the mall firing repeated rounds at the car of young people.

None of the parties names are being made public because no criminal charges have been filed yet.

The incident started when the 30-year-old, leaving the mall with his girlfriend and their two young children, yelled at the young males in a Honda Accord speeding erratically in the parking lot, according to Las Cruces Police Department spokesman Dan Trujillo.

After an exchange of words, the family and the young males got in their respective vehicles, according to police. The father took out a handgun. As the cars drove from the mall parking lot, one of the passengers in the Honda leaned out a window and threw a rock at the family's car, shattering a window.

Thinking the explosion was a gunshot, police say the man fired his handgun a single time, striking the right butt cheek of one of the Honda's passengers, a 20-year-old.

The gunshot victim was found a few minutes later after the Honda sped off, police say, ran a red light and T-boned an SUV in the intersection of Missouri Avenue and Triviz Drive just before 8:45 p.m. The young man - who could only answer a few questions before he began to "scream in pain" - was transported to University Medical Center of El Paso because emergency workers could not find an exit wound.
No major injuries were reported after the car crash.

At least two of the young males - the driver and one of the passengers who initially fled the scene - were very drunk, according to the police report. The passenger who returned to speak to police - even though he is 17 and admitted to drinking beer and smoking marijuana - was allegedly injured by another bullet, according to his mother. She said her son's lip was sliced by a bullet in an alleged hail of gunfire as the boys fled the man and the mall.

"He fired many shots," she said. "The vehicle has many, many bullet shots. He was chasing them through Triviz, shooting at them. That's why they were going through the red lights."

The mother, who requested anonymity because she feared for the safety of her son, said he and the other boys, coworkers at an onion processor for the summer, went to the mall to meet girls and had been drinking. But they apparently caught the older man's wrath by messing around when getting in the car - pretending to let the passengers in, then speeding up, then allowing some of them to ride on the hood.

"This man, out of nowhere, just came up and he said, 'You need to stop it!'" she said. The man then allegedly called them a slur in Spanish, ordering, "'Hey, get off the car!'" she said. "He punched the Honda and drove off."

After the other passenger threw a rock at the older man, the shot was fired.

"My son says he turned and only saw the fire coming out and he felt his lip burst open, hot, and there was a lot of blood and that's when they started taking off, following him," she said. "And he was shooting at them all this time."

Police said the man who fired the shot - singular - is not a law enforcement officer, just a citizen legally entitled to carry a handgun and defend himself.

"As of right now, there are no charges filed and it doesn't appear there will be, but people do have a legal right to protect themselves - protect their lives and the lives of their family," Trujillo said.

The investigation is ongoing and criminal charges against the Honda's occupants - including the Mesquite woman's son - are possible.
