After the boys ran away as fast as they could, he jumped in his car and chased them, stopping twice to shoot at them some more. He hit one boy in the eye with a frozen paintball, doing serious damage to his eye, and this was after the boys had left the yard. The boys stopped the MRDD bus and got on. When they showed the driver the injured boy's eye, she called 911 and asked for the police and a squad. Even though it would put her behind schedule, she stayed with the boys, so that the older boy who was now stopped behind the bus, could not continue his attack. He didn't leave until he saw her with a phone, realizing she had called for help.
Our heartfelt thanks goes out to this courageous woman for protecting our children, and we want to thank her again for being so considerate and compassionate. Thank you. You are our hero.
Mr. and Mrs. Robert Ehrler
