Smurf Shot in Leg in L.A.; Gargamel Not a Suspect

In Los Angeles, a Halloween reveler dressed up in a Smurf costume crossed paths with some alleged gang members and ended up getting shot in the calf, round-the-clock Halloween news source the L.A. Times reports. The Smurf had only been trying to help his girlfriend—who was also dressed as a Smurf—after one of the so-called gang members had punched her; he's now in stable condition.

So far the authorities haven't located the suspect, but a. are certain it wasn't Gargamel, because he hates L.A. and wouldn't be caught dead there, and b. plan on making the shooter watch that awful Smurfs movie on repeat until he confesses to the crime.
