“The actual incident, police say, occurred because Walker Daughetry got it into his head that border-crossers “were inside the RV that Edwin Roberts and his wife were in, in an attempt to kidnap them. Instead of announcing himself, Walker allegedly tried opening the RV,” the local CBS news channel reports, prompting Roberts to fire a shot at the door.”

When police attended the scene, rather than admit to their stupidity, the hunters told police had been shot by some undocumented migrants that they had seen earlier. Their story has since unravelled, and they now indicted on third degree felonies.

Guess they didn’t expect the cops to do basic police work, or something?
