Man Accused Of Shooting Niece

A man is under arrest, accused of shooting his niece.

Halifax County lawmen arrested 62-year-old James Walker. Detectives say he shot his niece, April King, in the lower leg Wednesday. Authorities say Walker picked up the rifle when he was trying to stop an argument between King and her husband, Robert King.

Detectives say the two men started fighting on the floor, and the gun discharged. Robert King was charged with obstructing justice.

    To funny. This old guy and her 37 year old husband get to fighting, wonder why? Wonder what was really going on in there. Why didn't anyone interview neighbors. Maybe the husband was beating the crap out of the neice and the uncle was comming to stop him. As far as the husband, I would imagine he was trying to change the story and keep getting in the way. Who called the police? She was shot, the other two were fighting. Who called? What did they hear or see that caused them to call for help?

    If he was charged with shooting her, then the husband should be too.Along with assault on this man that is much older than he is.

    Per the story, Robert King obstructed justice by arguing with his wife and quarreling with 62-year old James Walker.

    You all think he tried to shoot his own niece on purpose??? While it's possible, I highly doubt it. Now, if you were accusing Robert King of doing it, I might would believe it. It's possible that the gun was accidentally fired while they were on the floor fighting. Don't be so quick to jump to conclusions without thinking about the situation first.

    What? People need to sit down and realize that it was prob done on purpose. Its so crazy that many people that commit the most harmful and dumbest crimes dont get a greater charge!
