Two random shots by "hunters" and two people were hit? Many many millions-to-one odds of that happening. This story doesn't pass the smell test to me. I suspect there's a lot more to it than what we're hearing.

Something doesn't seem right either with this story, 2 shots in the same place both striking each boy? Doesn't sound like a hunter with an accidental shot(s). I want to see what else happens as this story develops.

Prayers for the families involved.

I predict the dude with the .223 is a homeboy that was supposed to shoot the two kids on the court, and the other guys with the real deer rifles were legit hunters.

Everyone knows only thugs would hunt with a .223

Exponentially long odds of two stray ricochets hit targets,that far away, that close in time...

They should have bought lottery chances

Sounds intentional to me . Two moving targets both hit. It's got to be more to it.

Prayers for their recovery and for their families. That being said.... I agree, there is something not right about this. 2 shots and 2 people get hit and the nearest ranch is 400 yards away. If that was an accident it is an unbelievably far fetched one but could happen. I understand why they are looking at the hunters as the possible cause but it's sad that even if it was not them the perception will never go away.

one article states its in a that area of edinburgh is in a high crime area.lots of gang activity going on.
it could very well have been a hunter, if he fired two quick rounds.... but he had to have known a school is nearby!!!!!

I didn't think it passed the smell test either. I think the media is just grabbing onto the "Hunter" part of the story for sensationalism. It sure seems like it must have been intentional, at least on some level.

Regardless, I feel for those boys.

Just read they are detaining a third man who is an illegal who was apprehended with an "assault rife."

Now, it's starting to make sense!

Once i learned that i didn't "NEED" to kill something, and that if i did kill something all the fun stopped and work began, i was a much better hunter.

Immediately afterward, a DPS helicopter helped find one man north of the campus with a .223-caliber semiautomatic rifle, Treviņo said. He was taken into custody and being questioned.



That's your shooter.

I smell FISH !!

I am betting that as this develops the hunters will be exonerated.

It was probably a gun that was involved in "Fast & Furious" and I'm sure the government will hush it up. We may never know the real story.

Just sayin'

Good for you! You missed the point completely!

The guy was number one illegally here. Number two the criminal (thug) was in possession of a so called assault rifle on U.S. soil which he wasn't a citizen of.
Number three he was tresspassing.
Number four, this was in Edinburg which is not too far away from the border and the drug trafficing.
So with all that, and it is deer season, I guess that is the best excuse he could come up with!

Doesn't take a lot of imagination to figure this one out!

Absolutely! After all, everybody knows that the illegals are harmless and are just here looking for a better life. At least that's what I'm told.

400 yards stray shots!! Smells funny... I dont see 2 moving targets getting shot by accident. At 400 yards you are aiming at what you are shooting. Hope the boys come out alright
