Law enforcement officials say it's unclear if the early Wednesday morning shooting that sent a Big Spring man to the emergency room was an accident or a suicide attempt, as the investigation into the shooting continues.
Robert Diaz, 30, of Big Spring was transported to the emergency room at Scenic Mountain Medical Center shortly after the incident, which was reported to law enforcement at approximately 6:37 a.m.
Good food and a good cause will intersect Saturday when the Big Spring Eagles Lodge holds its second annual BBQ Fest.
Lodge members will serve barbecue meals with all the fixings beginning at noon Saturday to benefit the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Crippled Children in Lubbock.
Last year's inaugural event raised $5,000 for the hospital.
Plates will be sold for $10 each, and will include barbecue, potato salad, cole slaw, beans, bread and a drink. All proceeds from the event will go to Scottish Rite and any additional donations will be gratefully accepted, Moran said.
