After suffering the loss of a sibling, one Texas family held a barbecue fundraiser to raise money for their brother’s funeral.


What began as a friendly neighborhood event took a turn for the worst after the family’s first customer, a neighbor, turned violent after being served some cold chicken. Although the family reimbursed the neighbor for the unsatisfactory meal, the man returned ready to fight after he found the remnants of the chicken thrown on his lawn.

A few punches were thrown leaving culprits with some bruises and bloody noses. Despite the injuries, the neighbor wasn’t finished teaching the family a lesson after the fist fight. The violent man shot the mother in the leg twice and the sister once in the leg. The mother, April Bautista, tells ABC 7,


“We started walking away and something told me to turn around. When I turned around he had gone inside the house and then comes back out and he had a gun. At first he shot up in the air and then that’s when he started shooting at us.” 

The man went M.I.A. after the shooting and police are still on the lookout.


Turns out, this isn’t the first time violence broke out at a barbecue. Back in May, a woman’s eye was stabbed with a fork after taking the last rib at a barbecue.
