(NaturalNews) If you've been paying attention to the news lately, you might have heard something about a violent "game" being played by mostly inner-city youths called the "Knockout Game."

Here's how it works: As a group of teens pass by someone who is most often walking alone, one of the teens takes a swing at the person with the goal of knocking them out with one punch.

The game is being played all around the country, but it seems to have had its roots either in New Jersey or somewhere else along the eastern seaboard. Lots of people have been attacked; some have even died as a result of the game, which also is called the "one-hitter quitter."

But it was just a matter of time before one of these little punks ran into more than they could handle.

'He shoved something into my side'

Call it the mistake of bringing a taser to a gunfight. As reported by Breitbart News:

A teen playing the "Knockout Game" in Lansing, Michigan unwittingly targeted a concealed carry permit holder and was shot twice. He survived and is now in jail.

WILX in Lansing reports that the teenager, Marvell Weaver, who is black, tried to knock out a father who was waiting at a bus stop on Feb. 26 for his daughter to arrive.

"I saw the van circle twice, and the second time three kids came out. I didn't suspect anything. I hadn't any enemies, or any reason to believe they would be looking to do anything to me," the man - whose identity was protected - told the TV station.

Instead of simply trying to punch the dad, Weaver tried a different variation of the game by trying to use a taser.

"He shoved something into my side. I wasn't sure what it was. It had some force to it. I wasn't sure if it was a knife or a gun," the victim said.

But the taser malfunctioned, leaving Weaver little more than a sitting duck (sitting punk?).

When the taser didn't work, the father reached inside his clothing and pulled out a .40 caliber handgun, shooting the teen twice.

Weaver has since admitted previously knocking out six or seven people on days before being shot. He admitted that being shot was "a lesson learned." He's now serving one year in jail for his attack.

"It was just a lesson learned. I wish I hadn't played the game at all," Weaver told the station.

On the day he was shot, Weaver said he wasn't with his usual crowd. He said the "game" usually gets underway when someone is dared to "play" it.

"They weren't my normal group of friends. Someone just throws it out there and people go along with it. One thing leads to another and it just goes all downhill," he said.

'It's just senseless'

He went on to say that players usually liked to target crowds, because it made it easier to get away by losing yourself in a gaggle of people.

He also said victims are completely chosen at random. They could be man or woman, young or old - it made no difference.

Yet, he never thought that playing would nearly cost him is life and a year in jail.

"There's a price to pay if they wind up doing it. A good example is Marvell Weaver," Officer Robert Merritt, with Lansing P.D., told the station.

Merritt said that, if an attack was considered bad enough, the attacker could be charged with a felony.

"It's just senseless. Teenagers have a lot better things to do with their time," he said.

Some apparently don't.

"What they tried to do to me wouldn't have been a joke if they would've succeeded. My child would've been left with the aftermath of seeing her father in any type of way I would've been left," said the victim.
