SHOSHONE COUNTY, Idaho -

A night of Fourth of July fun ended with a few gunshots this weekend in Shoshone County.

Steven Morse, his family and a few friends were camping near Gram Lake. Their campsite bordered the land of Michael "Skeeter" Hall, a man Morse nor his friends had ever met.

"He said he doesn't talk to too many people, he was lonely and just wanted someone to talk to," Morse said describing Hall as he approached the campsite.

Hall climbed over the barbed-wire fence separating his property from the campsite and joined the campers in celebrating the holiday.

Around midnight, many of the campers headed off to bed and that's when Morse says Hall began causing problems.

"We all tried to go to bed and he said he was going to leave and about an hour or so later, he was making a bunch of noise and we got up and asked him to leave a few times."

Morse friend Daniel Hubbard grew frustrated with Hall and the two began arguing. Morse was able to calm the two men down enough and Hubbard began to walk away, but Morse says that's when Hall stumbled to the ground, and when he came up, he came up shooting. Morse quickly wrested the gun from Hall's hands but that's when fear turned to panic as Hubbard had been shot.

"They said they pulled five pieces out of him in the abdomen, two in the leg, one through the hand and one through the hip," says Morse.

Hubbard was quickly rushed to the hospital and police were led to Hall's house where he was arrested and charged with aggravated battery.

Hubbard is currently being held in Kootenai Health where he is in serious condition.

Idaho State Police Detectives are still investigating.
