Hitchhiker writing kindness book gets shot

39-year-old author Raymond Dolin might want to reconsider the title of the new book he’s working on: The Kindness of America.

The writer from West Virginia was doing some research for his memoir by hitchhiking across the country and collecting stories from the people he met along the way, when alongside Highway 2 in Montana…Dolin was shot by a complete stranger.

Montana police arrested 52-year-old Charles Lloyd Danielson III with driving under the influence and weapon assault charges in connection with the road side shooting.

Dolin was taken to the hospital after the incident and is now recovering from non-life threatening injuries. He still found plenty of kindness along the way, including from a passing motorist who was the first person to come to the author’s aid.
