Just last week, on opening day in Kansas, two brothers and a close friend split up into two parties at dawn to hunt their private lease. Three hours later, two of the men were calling from behind a fan as they lay on their bellies. Unbeknownst to them, the third was stalking them. At some point, at some distance, the stalker fired a 12-gauge at the fan, striking both men in their faces and upper bodies. He was able to help them walk to his vehicle and drove them directly to the Girard Medical Center. From there, they were airlifted to Freeman Hospital West in Joplin, Kansas. Two days later, they were still in critical condition and had yet to be interviewed, so some details aren’t entirely clear.
