KETTLE FALLS, Wash. — Family members say the Kettle Falls man shot by park rangers at Kettle River Campground over the weekend had been standing alongside his nine-year-old son when the bullet tore into his torso, writes The Spokesman Review.
Few details of the shooting have been disclosed by the National Park Service or investigators with the Washington State Patrol.
The shooting injured 43-year-old Casey Hartinger. It happened after a Saturday night confrontation between rangers and another man who owns a houseboat that was moored at the campground. It’s unclear what prompted a ranger to open fire on Hartinger, says The Spokesman Review.
