    Milwaukee Mother Shoots Son During Prank

    MILWAUKEE - A prank turns to terror on Milwaukee's north side.
    It happened when a 21-year-old man thought it would be funny to scare his mother when she got home from shopping Thursday night.
    He put on a ski mask, confronted her behind their home and pretended to rob her.
    That's when she pulled out a .357 revolver and fired several times.
    Her son was hit at least twice by bullets, one of them to the groin.
    He is in the hospital this morning, but there is no word on his condition.
    Officials say they discovered two guns on the scene of the shooting in the 3700 block of N. 13th Street.

    The guy is a moron. Deserves what he got IMHO. That is NEVER a joke, especially when the person you are trying to pull the joke on may be armed.

    Was it a Prank? Or was he trying to really rob his mother?

    They found 2 guns at the scene!

    She had time to get out her gun. Makes me think he took it farther than jumping out and scaring her. Sounds like he actually demanded money at gun point. So she gets out her Uh, Wallet. And pays him in Lead.

    Stupid!

    A .357 to the pelvis is a pretty smart shot. You WILL go down.

    Hasnt he heard of spraying pam on the tile floor, or plastic wrap on the seat? Hey my girlfriend works at a bank, maybe I should try the ski-mask prank on her, see how that goes. What an idiot, feel bad for the mom she probably feels terrible.

    What we have here is a total failure of the victim selection process.

    And through out this entire mixed up mess, everyone's focusing on the guns rather than the stupidity.

    People see what they want to see, nothing else.

    I think pranks like this are totally stupid. No matter how well you think you know someone, you never really know what they will do in a stressfull situation like being robbed.

    I was watching one of those greatest pranks shows on vh1 on something, and many of them were something like like this. Only on one of them did a very large guy charge someone who he thought was a murderer and tackled the crap out of him.

    But, never try to scare someone with a pretend robbery or the like who carrys a firearm.
