NEW TREND: Shooting your enemies in the butt is what's really hood now.

Shot from behind: Live 5 investigates new crime trend
By Harve Jacobs


A Live 5 News investigation has uncovered an unusual crime that is meant to send a message.

We are talking about victims who are shot in the buttocks, and it happens more often than you might think.

We interviewed a man who calls himself ‘Coach,' he knows the streets and several drug dealers.

Though Coach declined to have his face shown on camera, he offered insight into the nature of these shootings.

"That's the only thing a guy will pull out a gun for, drug related. You either rob them, or it's drug related," he explained.

Why shoot someone in the rear end?

"If I were to shoot somebody in the butt, you know, I'm looking at less time. You can't get an attempted murder charge like that. I think that's why they're doing it," Coach said.

Many victims wind up in the hospital.

Dr. Doug Norcross is a trauma surgeon at MUSC.

Norcross says he performs a couple of surgeries a month on victims who are shot in the butt.

"Young guys shooting each other for spite or to make a point. I don't understand. I cannot begin to understand it," Norcross said.

He said the injuries can be serious.

"Some of the consequences can be bad, a lot of bleeding, colon injuries."

They are injuries that can lead victims in a lot of pain and a lot to think about.

We asked Coach, "Why don't the drug dealers kill their targets instead of shooting them in the butt."

"You won't get what he owes you if you kill him. So you kill him, you get nothing and you get time on your hands. You're gonna get caught," he said.

Reverend Eva Smith is pastor at the Charleston County Jail.

Smith works with inmates, many who are locked up for gun violence.

"There's something wrong when it's brothers killing each other to the point where they are shooting them in the backside. Now that is just terrible," Smith said.

Whether it's a trend or a once in a while thing, chances are someone's butt may soon have a bullseye on it.

    Styles P stabbed a nigga in the ass and went to jail for like 8 months.

    I think that's why they came up with that Ass Bag skit on Jada's first album.

    first off im not a new nigga.
    i am a nigga from the old school where if you plan on shooting someone you are shooting to kill not to play.

    the fact that you take out a gun and take time to aim at a mans ass is homo.
    you cant shoot him in the foot or leg if you must warn him or whatever?

    why are you even taking a gun out if you dont plan on killing? but its ok to say ""imma shoot this nigga in his ass"

    its the new niggas thats the joke.
  • It's the fact that you have to look at a niggas booty and aim at it with one eye close that makes it gay!!!

    Nigga don't be lookin at my ass winking if your upset with me!

    Nigga, where I'm from it wasn't a sign of homo shit. That shit was no more than a disrespectful move to the nigga that got shot. Niggas are going to clown you. You don't even have enough rank to get shot like a g, you got shot in the ass like a bitch. Plus that memory will stick with that nigga.

    Niggas gotta stop with this gay recon shit...that shit is fucking ridiculous

    welll sorry homie, where im from in philly, when you shoot a nigga it aint to clown you later about it because if you didnt kill the nigga most likely he will be coming back for you. if you wanna disrespect a nigga then smack up his kid or girl or firebomb a niggas moms house.. thats how you disrespect. the moment you pull guns into it, ittakes a different turn.

    again these new niggas too busy wanting to clown niggas rather than getting the job done.

    yall gonna learn

    Nigga fuck all that yall going to learn shit. This isn't philly. Niggas speak different languages in different states nigga.

    There was a time when a nigga could say "fuck you nigga" without niggas going on a gay witch hunt

    Shit is retarded...

    And there's a world outside of philly, nigga

    Best believe you get shot in the ass, you not talking to some niggas like "yo this nigga gay, he shot me in the ass"

    Best believe you probably trying to keep it on the low

    Niggas will laugh at you and ask you to repeat that shit...and they not laughing with you nigga

    i am very familiar with the world outside philly. but the bottom line is that niggas is gonna be niggas regardless of location. in cali they kill you for a color, in florida they kill you if you in orlando and you from palm beach.

    i grew up in an era where you cant joke with a gun. niggas in philly are shooting to kill otherwise why shoot?
    on some real shit...niggas making bussing guns a joke now? you get shot in the ass an you wanna keep that on the low? for real? im no killer but the fact someone shot at me makes me want to retailiate, let alone if they hit me.
    niggas out here gambling with they life for a quick joke and clown someone for shits and giggles now?

    then in the article the nigga said its so they wont get a murder charge, really? so you cant shoot them in the leg, foot, blow their knee off if you want to warn them. none of that makes the least bit of sense huh?
