As I recall the weapon used was a pellet gun or rifle. In the even law enforcement and the court forgets... a pellet has the same force as a .22.
My eldest daughter was shot years ago by a neighbor boy who had within the previous two weeks completed a gun safety class with his father. The (BB) was shot from a pellet rifle which had the force of a .22 caliber rifle. The "BB" entered her arm, traveling some 4 inches in the middle of her forearm traveling upward toward the elbow in the middle of the forearm. It remained stuck between two bones where she had to have major surgery to have it removed.
In the 1980's, when that occurred to my daughter, there was an estimated 30 people a year killed by pellet guns. BB guns also can kill a human being if the BB hits the right place on the body.
This guy who fired his pellet gun at people got off due to what I consider a bargain deal with the court. Unfortunately, I have found that Nevada lives in the ages back in the 1980's where guns and alcohol were evidently just part of young mens way of having a good time.

I do not believe your daughter was injured. I got shot with my daddy's 12 inch pudding blower, I didn't get hurt, I am a pretty fragile guy might I add.

By the way Nevada is the place to be if your a real man. I should know, my daddy is from there.

Guns and alcohol at the same time, or at separate times, and don't forget we have hookers, maybe hookers, guns, gambling and alcohol at the same time. That sounds like an awesome time, and I didn't know the 80's had a set standard for a "good time" and I shall also assume since you are from Kalifornia you have never shot a weapon, much less a firearm and much less a .22 so we'll just act like you never said that. I know, sometimes you just embarrass yourself, it happens.
