Two friends went into the woods to hunt for the almighty mysterious "Sasquatch" when one heard a strange noise & got scared & turned to run & shot his friend in the back. Deputies explain it all in this Interview...
ROGERS COUNTY, Oklahoma -
via:http://www.newson6.com/Rogers County Sheriff's Department arrested three people in what appears to be an accidental shooting. One of the men told deputies he'd shot his friend while the two were on a Sasquatch hunting expedition.
The two men were hunting - apparently for Bigfoot - around 177th East Avenue and Tiger Switch Road Saturday night. Omar Pineda reportedly heard a "barking noise," jerked and shot his friend in the back, authorities say.
"When you start off with an explanation like that, do you believe anything after that?" Sheriff Walton said Sunday morning.
The men met emergency responders at a QuikTrip near Interstate 44 and 161st Street. The wounded man is expected to survive.
Pineda, 21, was arrested for reckless conduct with a firearm and obstruction.
Deputies also arrested Perry Don James, Pineda's father-in-law. James threw his son-in-law's gun in a pond on the property because he is a convicted felon and was afraid to have the gun on his property, the Sheriff said.
James, 53, was booked on complaints of felon in possession of a firearm and destruction of evidence.
The shooting victim was also carrying a gun, though he dropped it when he got shot, according to a news release. That gun has been recovered.
Deputies arrested 22-year-old Lacey Jane Pineda, Omar's wife, for obstruction because she told police at one point that someone else had shot at her husband and his friend, according to RCSO.
