2 Texas middle school students shot by hunters

. . Harwell Middle School opened just this year on the rural property northeast of Edinburg, which is about 50 miles northwest of Brownsville. Homes line the road approaching the school, but open fields stretch out behind it and to the north.

So what’ll it be: hunting or children? You can’t have both in the same place, Texas. Someone should have mentioned this earlier . .

EDINBURG, Texas — Three deer hunters suspected of possibly firing the shots that wounded two South Texas middle school students were taken in for questioning . .

Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevino told The Associated Press that authorities have theorized that the students were hit by “errant or stray bullets” fired from hunting pastures near the middle school, which was hosting outdoor tryouts for the basketball team . .

Even if accidental, investigators will want to know how close the shooters were to the school when they opened fire. Trevino said two hunting pastures are within 600 yards of the school.

A 30.06 will take down deer at 600 yards. Y’all didn’t think this would be a problem?

One was in critical condition Monday night with a gunshot wound in in the back and a bullet embedded in an organ, while the other was in stable condition with a gunshot wound to the armpit, Trevino said.

A society’s priorities are sacred. The school’s gotta go.
