The first sentence informs us that a creature (like a panda, for example) eats newly emerging vegetative manner (shoots) as well as eating leaves.

The second one says that somebody eats something (say, in a restaurant), then they shoot a person/s with a gun and then they leave.

It is that single comma inserted after the first word in the second sentence (Eats,) that differentiates one meaning from the other and what a difference it makes.
