    A 12-year-old boy, one of two people injured Monday by paintball gun shootings in Brockton, Massachusetts, initially thought he was shot with a real gun.

    Cody Hiltz's eye was bandaged Tuesday after he was hit in the eye with a paintball.

    "I thought it was a real gun at first, so I started screaming as loud as I could," Hiltz said.

    The boy saw a black Acura speeding toward him. Police are now looking for that car.
