A lawsuit filed in Will County court this week claims a Romeoville woman's daughter shot him in the eye with a pellet gun.
The extent of the injuries allegedly suffered by Joseph Szymanski were not mentioned in the lawsuit.
Szymanski was visiting Michelle Schneider and her "four minor children" at their Romeoville home in late March, the lawsuit said.
Szymanski was "sitting on a chair and conversing with" Schneider when one of her "minor daughters approached him while she was holding the 'airsoft' toy pistol," the suit said.
The "toy" gun belonged to Schneider, according to the suit, and while the daughter was holding it, "a pellet from the pistol discharged into" Szymanski's eye.
Airsoft guns fire small plastic pellets.
The lawsuit did not specify the age of the daughter who allegedly shot Szymanski's eye.
