Park ranger fired on boat because he ‘heard gunfire’

A National Park Service Ranger fired on an occupied boat near Kettle Falls, Wash., in September after his partner was shoved from a gangplank and he heard “pops” indicating gunfire, according to court documents.

The owner of the boat has been charged with assaulting a federal agent and obstructing justice stemming from the incident at a rural Stevens County campground on the banks of the Kettle River.
