Arizona State RB shot in buttocks

I imagine that it's never a good thing to be shot, but that if you had to choose an area of your body to take a bullet, I'm guessing your rear end would probably be the best place to do so. There are no vital organs, and there's plenty of fatty tissue to absorb the blow. So, I guess in that sense, Arizona State running back Deantre Lewis is lucky.

Lewis was shot in the buttocks on Saturday.
Arizona State running back Deantre Lewis was injured in a random shooting Saturday in his hometown of Norco, Calif.
According to Facebook posts from teammates, Lewis was shot in the buttocks. His injuries are not considered life threatening, and Lewis is recovering in a local hospital.
Arizona State confirmed the shooting, and while the school wouldn't give any details behind the shooting, they did say that Lewis was home visiting his family when it occurred. Lewis is coming off an impressive freshman season, in which he finished second on the team in rushing with 539 yards and 4 touchdowns. He also caught 23 passes for another 370 yards and 2 touchdowns.

There's no word on whether or not this injury will affect Lewis' availability for spring practice.

Arizona State RB shot in buttocks

The article out here in the AZ Republic said that he was hit with a stray bullet.  There were supposedly shots, or a shot, fired somewhere else in the neighborhood where his family lives, and he got hit.  That's all it said.  CBS is the first i've seen that he was shot in the bumb.

I don't see it that way.  Where is kind of important information.  It changes the significance of the story; getting shot in the head is a lot bigger deal than getting shot in the arm.

When did CBS become about the sensationalisitc.  I'm not even bothering to read this story.  The headline is nothing but tabloid journalism.  To state the location in the victim's body that the bullet entered the body of the victim is soemthing that could have been reserved for body of the story.
