Teens playing game draw gunfirePosted: Updated:
LEWISTON, Idaho. - Dozens of teens in Lewiston are filling the warm summer nights with a cat-and-mouse-type game called "Fugitive" that has them running and hiding their way across town.
Now police are asking them to stop, or at least to find a more rural area for the game. That's because the kids have drawn gunfire from a resident who apparently mistook them for burglars.
No one was injured by the shots but police Captain Tom Greene says his department is concerned about what might happen next. He says the kids could be confronted or hurt by a resident who thinks they are late-night prowlers as they sneak through backyards.
