The Kettle Falls man shot by park rangers at a campground over the weekend had been standing alongside his 9-year-old son when the bullet tore into his torso, family members say. Few details of the shooting have been disclosed by the National Park Service or investigators with the Washington State Patrol. The shooting injured Casey Hartinger, 43. It happened after a Saturday night confrontation between rangers and another man who owns a houseboat that was moored at the Kettle River Campground within the Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area. At least one park ranger boarded the houseboat in response to a noise complaint/Kip Hill, SR. More here.

Question: Do you understand why people are so excited about this story?
