18-Year-Old Woman Reports Being Shot With BB Pellet Near Holland Park

| May 30, 2014

james holland park plaqueSometime before 5 p.m. Thursday afternoon, an 18-year-old resident of Black Bear Lane was walking near Holland Park in Palm Coast, off of Florida Park Drive, when she noticed a “young black male”–according to her description in an incident report–with a black, long rifle bb gun. The individual was at the intersection of Florida Park Drive and Fleetwood Drive.

The woman, who is white, said she’d never seen the man before. She told a Flagler County Sheriff’s deputy that she was then struck on the left side of her chin with what appeared to be a bb pellet. The young man, she said, then took off running south on Florida Park Drive, towards Palm Coast Parkway.

The woman was taken to Prompt Care at 120 Cypress Edge Drive and was evaluated by a doctor on staff. The doctor confirmed that she had a bb pellet still lodged in her chin. He recommended that she seek treatment from Florida Hospital Flagler’s emergency room, where the woman went.

The woman said “she did not wish to pursue any law enforcement action,” but merely wanted the incident documented. No arrests were made in the case.

    Oh man, if that was me and somebody shot me, heck yes I would want to pursue it with any law enforcement action available. The county should prosecute regardless.

  2. confidential says:

    What is wrong with this woman…no prosecuting? This kid is a danger to the public and may end up killing a citizen if left on the loose. The sheriff needs to investigate and catch the shooter regardless.
    Jeez.. I drive in that area all the time. What about all the other neighbor kids walking endangered then?

  3. Dave says:

    I imagine she isn’t pressing charges because there is nothing to go on. How are they supposed to find this random mystery man with only the description of, “young black male?”

  4. A.S.F. says:

    Or. perhaps she is afraid of retaliation. Or, perhaps there is more to this story than we realize.

  5. Knows it all says:

    That’s why they keep doing it. Nobody presses charges and if they do the judges turn them loose. It’s a win-win for the bad guys.

  6. Ron says:

    strikes me it is getting worse under Manfre.We are republicans but voted for Manfre. 3 votes in this house will vote against him this time.
