The Mountain Home Volunteer Fire Department and the Kerr County Sheriff’s Department responded to a suspected arson and deadly shooting that occurred at the Crazy Horse RV Park last night.

According to a witness, who asked to remain anonymous, last night around 8:35 p.m., black smoke poured off the hilltop surrounding Thrill Hill off of Hwy 479 in West Kerr County. Shortly after she noticed the smoke, she heard gunfire. “We heard two shots, then one shot, then three shots real fast – pop, pop, pop. I knew it couldn’t be good.” It wasn’t.

The Kerr County Sheriff’s Office posted the following press release on their Facebook page:

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mr. Ballard’s family and friends.
