Rodney King Shot
Motorist Rodney King was shot, apparently while bicycling around town drunk.
Rodney King, whose videotaped beating once made him an international symbol of police brutality, suffered minor injuries after getting hit by a shotgun blast, authorities in California said on Thursday.
An intoxicated King summoned officers to his home in Rialto, about 60 miles east of Los Angeles, on Wednesday night to report he had been shot, said Sgt. Don Lewis of the Rialto Police Department.
“He had some minor pepper wounds that looked like they were from bird shot,” said Lewis, who described the injuries as “extremely minor.”
Lewis said King told police the shooting took place while he was riding his bicycle in neighboring San Bernardino. King rode his bicycle home after the incident and it was not immediately clear who fired the shot, Lewis said.
“(King) and the whole house were very intoxicated and very uncooperative,” Lewis said.
People, can’t we just get along?
