Exclamation Students hit by suspected hunters' shots

EDINBURG, Texas - Three deer hunters suspected of possibly firing the shots that wounded two South Texas middle school students were taken in for questioning, but investigators hadn't determined early Tuesday whether the shootings were accidental, reckless or intentional, a sheriff said.

Two students, ages 13 and 14, were wounded in the Monday afternoon shootings outside Harwell Middle School near Edinburg.

Man you gotta know where that bullet can wind up.In New York this year a guy put a round into a school bus.He shot at a deer in a field but he shot back towards the road.He was caught and charged the bullet lodged above the drivers head.

One of the three (possibly more) was in the country illegally, was using an "assault style" weapon, AND they were on land they did not have written permission to hunt on. Sure do hope that the judge throws the book at the lot of them. AND - Hope their first phone call is in their skivvies.

Gee, can we use "them" as target practice???
