On January 6 th 2017, Michael Bryant and Walker Daugherty reported that they were involved in a fire fight with a group of men that illegally came across the Mexican border. They claimed that the men tried to steal an RV and kidnap its occupants. Daugherty and another hunter, Edwin Roberts, were injured in the attack.
After an investigation it was determined that there was no such attack. Investigators determined that Daugherty shot Roberts and Bryant shot Daugherty. At this time we are unsure what led to the altercation.
According to Presidio County Sheriff Danny Dominguez, both Michael Bryant and Walker Daughetry were indicted by a grand jury on Wednesday for one charge each of using deadly conduct by discharging firearms in the direction of others, a 3rd Degree Felony.
