It is polite to throw your grandchildren under the bus. Politeness must be a Family Value.
Originally, both grandparents stated that their 10-year-old grandson shot the pistol twice after being asked to retrieve it for the grandfather. One of the rounds ended up hitting the grandfather in the leg.
But the investigation continued and deputies managed to interview the 10-year-old boy after his mother contacted them.
The boy stated that his grandparents were arguing which led to Hawkins getting the pistol and shooting towards her husband. The boy told deputies that his grandmother “did not mean to” shoot his grandfather.
You can’t make this stuff up, at least, you can’t if you are sane.
