    And another option is that they end up reopening the campsite and in a month or a year the shootings start up again, risking another person's life. Don't want that to happen either.

    I don't recall the name of the person who told the story of the neighbor with schizophrenia who was going into a culvert to shoot at cars (maybe Tbone?). With the paucity of information about the TB shooting compared to the other shootings, that example feels to me like the closest, and someone previously shooting at cars to see what happens, to see if anyone reacts immediately and if not that the next day they're going to find bullet/pellet holds in their car...and then ramping up to trying the same thing with a tent as the target.

    But I'd be hesitant to put the shooting of TB into this category as I don't have the instinct for the ammo, gun, and distance. If the shot came from 25 feet away then I think the campers are going to be more likely to notice and to hear sounds of the shooter retreating. In the quiet of dawn I think that might be the case even for 100 feet away. Go up to 250-500ft and I think it's more likely that the sound of the shot will reverberate around the hills...but that seems like a big difference compared to some of those bird shot cases.
