Golfer hit by pellet shot in Cumming

CUMMING, Ga. — A woman was teeing off at the first hole when she was struck by a pellet gunshot, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

On May 16, the general manager of Windermere Golf Course, 5314 Davenport Manor, told deputies the woman heard the shot come from a nearby home.

Deputies spoke to a homeowner, who had a son with an airsoft gun. She told deputies her son’s airsoft gun was broken, but she said “it was probably the squirrel man.”

She said there’s an older man a few doors down from her home who allegedly shoots squirrels off his bird feeders.

Deputies went to the home and saw the man’s bird feeders aligned with the victim’s tee box on the golf course.

The man said he was at the gym and did not shoot his pellet pistol that morning.

Deputies said no arrest were made due to a lack of evidence.
