Wheelers everywhere are mourning the loss today of a 7 year old boy who was shot and killed last week while on an off road adventure with his family Northeast of Houston.
Donald Coffey Jr. was riding with his 5-year-old sister and family friend while his father drove through an area with dirt roads and heavy brush that was commonly used for off-road activities. Sheila Muhs, a nearby resident, mistakenly thought the group was on their property and shot at the group with a 12-guage shotgun. Then, Sheila handed the gun over to her husband Gayle who fired a second shot.
Donald Coffey Sr. was shot in his shoulder and his daughter, Destiny, suffered a wound to the elbow. Family friend Patrick Cammack is still in serious condition with a head wound according to a hospital spokesperson.
The Muhs, who have a sign that reads, “Trespassers will be shot. Survivers will be reshot!! Smile I will,” outside their home are currently being held on a ridiculously low $25,000 bail each. Authorities are considering upgrading the aggravated assault charges to murder – and we hope they do.
Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long to see the Texas Justice System take care of the Muhs.
