Gale and Sheila Muhs, seen here in booking photos, are accused of shooting two adults and two children they mistakenly believed were trespassing on their property.
HOUSTON - A 7-year-old boy who was allegedly shot in the head by a couple who thought he and three other people were trespassing on their property died Saturday, authorities said.

What a couple of beauties. I hope they fry.
Looks like these creeps will be facing murder raps with in the Texas Judicial System.
I’m thinking these property owners might have been a tad hasty in pulling the trigger this time.
That is what being hopped up on meth in the backwoods of Texas will do to you.
Hold Muh Beer
And when they do, "Smile I will."
This has meth lab written all over it....
WHOA. Something tells me these two beauties were defending their meth house from trespassers!
Facts here are skimpy; I would like to know more. First off let me say I do not believe children who trespass should be shot, but this article is thin on details.
For example, have off-roaders, these in particular, been through there before and stolen anything in the past, or committed vandalism, run down and killed livestock, etc. There isn’t much being stated in this article. Nowadays so many children accompany their parents on crime sprees, I’ve become cynical.
I pray this doesn’t become another example of why “ordinary citizens” odn’t need guns!
The Houston Chronicle has the most detailed story on the shooting and at last check there was no mention of a meth lab.
However, I would not be at all surprised if the shooters turned out to be meth cooks.
Straight out of “Deliverance”. These chunks of human debris should be put to death in Huntsville. I would not mind at all being on the jury that sentences them.
Actually, the details are quite clear, the victims were not trespassing.
And no, you cannot shoot someone simply because you think they are trespassing on your land.
I am quite sure that their lawyer will come up with lots of excuses and justifications BUT I CANNOT THINK OF ANYTHING that justifies even pointing a gun at a couple of unarmed YOUNG KIDs. Since it was a shotgun, I cannot believe that these perps were not close enough to make an identification. My suspicion is a MJ Patch or Meth Lab in the area.
Authorities are also working on getting a warrant to search the couples home, a small stilt house with a rebel flag. A sign posted in front is scrawled with the warning: Trespassers will be shot. Survivers will be reshot!! Smile I will.
Remember that gun ban advocate Carl Rowan shot a trespasser in Washington DC with an illegal handgun.
Castle law isn’t going to apply here.
Is trespassing “iminent threat” ... I don’t think so. Wow...to shoot because they are on your property? God bless the little boy and may he rest in peace. Hope the friend who is in the hospital recovers as well. This is too sad.
