In fact, in short range the shot will not spread unless it is properly aimed. Obviously when fired from short range and with proper aiming at the object, the fire from the shotgun will cause considerable damage on the object. It is generally believed that a shotgun would be an effective firearm when it is fired at a range of about 100 feet. Obviously, higher caliber shotgun will have higher effective range.

However, now riot police all over the world are using rubber bullets or bean bag rounds and the wound from such bullets would not cause any serious injuries on the rioters. In most of the countries even rubber bullets continue to be aimed below the waist of the rioters and they are also being fired from long range.
