I am attending Georgia Military College and we were doing a corps of cadets paintball session. i finished playing paintball and turned in my gun and my mask. About 5 minutes goes by and a supervisor shoots me 2 times in the neck and once in the back. is there any legal charges that can come from this?

    Answered . Since your supervisor's conduct appears to have been beyond the scope of the academic exercise which was being performed, you may have a criminal or civil cause of action against your supervisor.
