Jesse Solomon McLaughlin, 20, was receiving treatment at Eugene's Sacred Heart Hospital Tuesday.
"We are grateful for the love of so many friends, family and supporters contributing to Jesse's healing," his family said in a statement released Tuesday. "As we continue this journey with Jesse, we ask for your support and prayers for his healing."
The McMinnville News-Register is reporting that McLaughlin was playing paintball in a rural area when he was shot by a hunter who was not part of his group. OK, so he was playing killer man, when he was shot, still, he was not aiming lethal weapons at rustling bushes, as was his attacker.
The Lane County Sheriff's Office said the hunter, 28-year-old Derek Eli Madsen of Veneta, shot into some brush near a Bureau of Land Management road where McLaughlin was playing. McLaughlin was struck by a single shot.
It was not clear what kind of gun the hunter was using, but you can bet it was neither a paint ball gun, nor a bb gun.
No charges have been filed but the sheriff's office is still investigating the incident, but will eventually rule that this is the price we must all pay, for venturing into the woods when the men, with their substitute penises, are out, in droves, venting their blood lust.
