Do I agree they should feel the full force of the law after pulling such a moronic prank in such a dangerous area? Of course, but I don't think it's really too off center to call them victims when they could easily be dead right now. It's not like the real gun shooters were firing warning shots, they were trying to kill them.
That's like going out and playing in traffic and then wanting to go after the drivers for vehicular homicide.
Oh, and the article did say one of the teenagers did get "hit in the hand", so he might have actually learned a lesson if the bullet did any real damage and not just a scrape or something.
If the drivers were aiming at them then yes, it's vehicular homicide. That's pretty much the definition.
I'm not too much into guns as teaching tools. This vigilante self-policing thing should have ended with the wild west.
