RGV Vipers Visit Harwell Shooting Victim
HIDALGO COUNTY - One of the students at Harwell middle school, who was injured from a gun shot, got a special visit at the hospital on Monday.
Several players from the RGV Vipers basketball team stopped by 13 year-old Nicholas Tijerina's hospital room to visit with him. Tijernia is in stable condition and remains in good spirits after being one of two students who were shot at on the campus of Harwell middle school last Monday. The two students were trying out for the school's basketball team on the outdoor playground last Monday. Police believe the bullets may have come from two hunters who were shooting at targets in the area. Police are still waiting on ballistic results which should be in sometime this week.
