Lawsuit filed against hunting guides in Presidio County shooting

PRESIDIO COUNTY -- A doctor who was shot multiple times by hunting guides in 2017 is suing both men in a personal injury lawsuit.

Walker Daugherty, second to the left, and Michael Bryant, second to the right, have been charged with using deadly conduct by discharging firearms in the direction of others.

Dr. Edwin Roberts claims that someone tried to break into their motorhome at Circle Dug Ranch in the county so he fired a warning shot into the air.

Roberts says that he then went to move the motorhome and was shot multiple times through the windows.

The initial shooting made national headlines after the guides, Michael Bryant and Walker Daugherty, claimed the shots were fired by undocumented immigrants.

Following an investigation Bryant and Daugherty were charged with using deadly conduct by discharging firearms in the direction of others, a 3rd Degree Felony.

The Roberts are now seeking $1 million for physical injuries and mental anguish.
