    Here's a link to a bunch of articles:
    http://www.twincities.com/mld....hooting

    quick synopsis:
    Hmong guy is lost in the woods, directed to a deer stand by some hunters, Deer stand happened to be on someone elses land, those other poeple saw him began hollering racial slurs and threats. They left came back with more people who yelled more and somehow got him out of the tree and chased him while shooting at him. So Vang shot back. Now of course, it's a murder trial, not a self denese trail had it been the other way around...

    from what I understand, Vang got pissed because some of the people told him to leave private property. So Vang shot them all..some of them in the back..which kind of takes away the self defense excuse.

    I read a lot about it at the time and it didn't look like there's a single reliable witness. But there seemed to be little doubt the accused snapped. It was a hellish situation, whether he created it himself or the others started it. But that's what can happen when the kind of people who yell at the TV or at a little league umpire come together in the woods with guns.
