Elderly Priest Shot With Paintball Gun in Church Parking Lot Over Funeral Parking Spat

CHICAGO (CBS) — A longtime priest says a recent paintball attack is not easy to talk about, but he wanted people to see the pain and frustration something like it can cause.

The 72-year-old still hurting from two circular bruises on his stomach–tell-tale signs of a paintball attack.

“It’s important to show this to tell people it is not a game that they’re doing.”

Reverend Father Primo Racimo walked us through how he was shot yesterday in broad daylight in the St Margaret Espiscopal Church parking lot.

“He was parked right here,” he said pointing to the parking spot.

He says a man attending a funeral at a church across the street refused to move out of the permit-only lot. Father Racimo went to take a picture of the man’s license plate then walked away.

“And then I heard a shot.”

He turned around to take another picture – then was shot again.
