"Argument over photos ends with a shooting"

It seems that drink, drugs, and family photos don't mix too well down in southern Bexar County.

From the Express-News:

A 24-year-old man was shot and critically wounded by his uncle in an argument over family photos Saturday afternoon in South Bexar County, authorities said.

Bexar County Sheriff’s detective Buck Buchanan said an afternoon argument over photos escalated to the point that a 42-year-old man, believed to be the uncle of the shooting victim, grabbed a 22-caliber rifle and fired at least once.

The victim, who was not immediately identified, was hit once in the lower back and flown to University Hospital about 45 minutes after the shooting.


Deputies originally responded to the 22500 block of Crossbow about 2:55 p.m. for a call of domestic disturbance, Buchanan said. The argument apparently erupted after a night of alcohol and drugs.

The two had been “drinking beer and snorting cocaine all night long,” Buchanan said.

Scrapbooking can get so ugly.
