Channel 39 got its hands on some cellphone camera footage of the gunshots fired over the weekend at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo. (In case you're wondering, the scoreboard so far shows one shooting incident, one cop-allegedly-throwing-tear-gas incident.)
Of course, it's blurry, shaky and very short, but the gunshots come through loud and clear, and they are something you definitely don't want to be hearing if you're with your kids on the midway.
