Lumberton 12-year-old shot by booby trap http://www.wral.com/news/state/story/3589379/ Posted: Today at 8:31 a.m. Updated: Today at 9:54 a.m. LUMBERTON, N.C. — A 12-year-old boy was recovering from a shotgun wound he sustained from a booby trap in an unoccupied house, authorities said. Robeson County Sheriff Ken Sealey said Josh Harold Locklear of Lumberton was shot in the side Sunday after he and a friend entered the house through an open window. The boy was wounded when he saw a box on the floor and tried to lift it. Sealey said Locklear was in stable condition after surgery at Southeastern Regional Medical Center. More devices were discovered in the house after police were called, but there was no sign of illegal activity in the building. The sheriff said the investigation is continuing with help from federal agents. "We've interviewed several witnesses and talked to people who live near the house, but there's still a lot we don't know," Sealey said. Sealey said the house hadn't been used in several years. Agents were trying to contact the owner, who lived out of the area. Joe Lenczyk, resident agent in charge of the Fayetteville office of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, said the devices were crudely made but effective. "They were designed as weapons in order to injure or kill anyone who tripped the devices," Lenczyk said. "We are looking at how those devices got there and who was responsible for putting them there." He said whoever set the booby traps could face federal charges because the traps would be classified as destructive weapons. ======= Little fuck needs to stay out of where he doesnt belong.
