Deputies were called June 25 about a motorcyclist who was shot in the chest. The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension ruled out a couple of handguns but could not definitely say the remaining gun fired the bullet.

Investigators say the group was target shooting without an adequate backstop. The motorcyclist was up to 1,900 feet (579 meters) away when he was shot.
