      Man wanted for drive-by blow gun shooting

      New London, Missouri police are searching for the man responsible for a drive-by blow gun shooting of a 10-year-old boy.

      Officials say it happened Monday when a truck approached two boys walking along a street.

      That's when someone inside the truck fired a 3 to 4 inch blow dart....striking one of the boys in the arm.

      New London's police chief told the Hannibal Courier post the boy's heavy coat prevented more serious injury.

      The boy had a tetanus shot and is reportedly okay.

      If you have any information, please call the police non-emergency number at 573-985-4041.
