New York State Police Respond To Shots Fired At Rondout Valley Campground in the Town of Rochester, New York
On Saturday, May 28, 2022, at approximately 7:00 p.m., New York State Police troopers from the Ellenville barracks responded to the Rondout Valley Campground in the town of Rochester for a report of juveniles shooting at customers with airsoft guns.
Airsoft guns often look like more firearms, but an airsoft gun shoots plastic bullets. However, airsoft guns can still hurt you pretty badly if you're hit on your bare skin, officials say.
"It's even worse on areas like the eye, face, neck, fingers, and groin. Airsoft gun impacts on bare skin can be very painful. That's why you need protection," Airsoft Nut states.
