Pirates terrorize Falcon Lake

A tourist visiting Texas' Falcon Lake from Colorado was reportedly shot and killed Thursday, Sept. 30, while attempting to visit an old church on the Mexican side of the lake. According to reports, the 30-year-old man and his wife were riding personal watercraft when three boats with armed pirates approached the pair.

A chase ensued as the couple fled for American water, but David Hartley was shot in the head and died. His wife, Tiffany, tried to pull Hartley onto her craft amid a shower of bullets but was forced to flee, leaving her husband in the water.

The pirates chased her back to American waters, but ended their pursuit as she reached shore, where she dialed 911. Read the full story: Man Killed by Mexican Pirates on Texas Lake.
