The Putnam County Sheriff's Office responded to a call this morning regarding a group of high school students playing a dangerous game with realistic-looking water guns. The game, "Assassin," involves players using water guns to "assassinate" their targets, often in public places.
While the game may seem harmless, it can lead to dangerous situations, including trespassing and unsafe driving. In addition, using realistic-looking water guns can cause confusion and panic among bystanders, who may mistake the toy for an actual weapon. This can lead to unnecessary police interventions and accidental injuries.
The Sheriff's Office urges students to refrain from playing this game and to choose safer and more responsible activities. We also ask parents to monitor their children's behavior and ensure they are not endangering themselves or others.
We appreciate the cooperation of the public in this matter and will continue to work towards ensuring the safety of our county.
