I tend to think like Gary Larsen, creator of Far Side Cartoons. Whenever I hear about a serial killer, I have vision of someone killing Snap, Crackle and Pop of Rice Krispies fame. However, Timothy Glass Jr., of Eureka, California is being referred to as ‘cereal’ shooter. No, he didn’t shoot a box of cereal. He loaded rice Krispies into a shotgun shell and fired it at another person, using a flare gun.

California cops have arrested a man in connection with a “cereal” crime.

Eureka cops responded to a report of shots fired Wednesday afternoon and found a man who had been struck in the hand with a shotgun shell filled with Rice Krispies, KRCR-TV reports. The weapon turned out to be a flare gun.

Police said they were told the assailant was Timothy Glass Jr., 29, of Eureka, and that he had fled the scene on a bicycle.

The victim was taken to the hospital…

I’ve known people to load rock salt in shotgun shells. In fact I can testify that being shot with rock salt results in very painful and stinging wounds, however the rock salt does not generally penetrate very deep. A man years ago loaded metal nuts, used with bolts, in a shotgun shell, but they jammed in barrel when he fired, blowing up the gun and severely injuring himself. But, this is the first time I’ve heard about someone loading breakfast cereal in a shotgun shell and shooting it.
