Just found this story on the net. Woman Shot While Stealing Gas From Cars, Police Say POSTED: 11:35 am PDT June 5, 2006 SPARKS, Nev. -- Police said woman was shot in the leg with a shotgun by a man who saw her and two others siphoning gasoline from vehicles in Sparks, Nev. Sarina Ellis, 22, was taken to a hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries. Police said the alleged shooter, Alden Noring, turned himself in shortly after the predawn incident Monday. Noring now stands accused of battery with a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm into a vehicle. According to police, Ellis, along with 25-yera-old Allen Dixon and 43-year-old Katrina Myrick-Davidson, were siphoning gas when Noring awoke and went outside with a shotgun to confront them. Police said Noring was involved in a similar shooting in 1995 Personally, I think this guy should go to jail for a very long time and be sued for everything he has. The idea of taking a shotgun to someone over $30 worth of gas is unimaginable! He was in no danger and he's done something similar on the past. I hate to see the gas thief profit from her crime (she should be under arrest as well), but this guy went over board. It doesn't even say that they were stealing his gas. If he was mad about gas theft, he should have done what I did after somebody siphoned gas out of my pickup. I went and bought a brand new, small gas can...filled it with 2 gallons of gas and 3 cups of sugar & just left it in the bed of my truck. It took a week, but finally someone stole that too. I wonder how THAT worked out for them!
