ZAPATA - Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez, Jr. tells CHANNEL 5 NEWS armed pirates shot at a McAllen couple on Falcon Lake this afternoon. The husband and wife were jetskiing near Old Guerrero.
On their way back to shore, pirates in a boat pulled up next to them and started shooting at them. The husband was hit, possibly in the head. The woman tried to save him and ended up being at shot as well. She had to turn around and leave her husband in the water. She fears he's dead.
Okay, sounds suspicious.
Still, the fact that pirates are mentioned on a lake (I believe I've heard this before) in Texas doesn't seem to draw any chuckles or what not from the reporter.
That's a story (and a tragic one) in and of itself.
