Walton Man Shoots Two People

DEFUNIAK SPRINGS, Fla. - Two people are in critical condition after they were shot approaching a home near Brown Road in Walton County.

Walton County Sheriff's deputies wrote in a news release Kyle Wagner, 32, shot Sara Schulmeister, 23, and Hunter Alford, 20, with a shotgun as they approached his home at about 10:30 last night. 

Investigators with the Sheriff's Office said Schulmeister and Alford allegedly were entering the fenced property belonging to Wagner when he fired two shots at the victims from his unlit porch. 

"On the surface it looks like, you know, somebody's defending their property," said Corey Dobridnia, the Public Affairs Coordinator with the Sheriff's Office. "But our investigators are confident in the charges and if Stand Your Ground law applied then he wouldn't be arrested."

He was booked into the Walton County Jail Wednesday morning on two counts of aggravated assault. Officials said more charges could follow.
