Sometimes I miss Texas

(Sean Gaffney, in the McAllen Monitor)

NEAR ALTON — A man walked into an illegal cockfight here and opened fire on the crowd Saturday evening, shooting two men in the chest and a woman through the wrist, according to authorities.

Several people in the crowd also pulled guns and exchanged fire with the man, who had been ejected from the cockfight sometime earlier for acting unruly, Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Treviño said.

“The only reason we found out about it is because people showed up at the hospital with the bullet wounds,” Treviño said. “The owner of the place obviously didn’t call the cops.

Uh… maybe he chickened out?
