Gunfight Breaks Out During East Texas Community Baseball Game

  A gunfight breaks out at an East Texas community baseball game, sending two to the hospital.   The Rusk County Sheriff's Department says the fight began when a man threw a beer can at his cousin, who was playing baseball at the Fairview Community Center in south Rusk County. Deputies say that's when the man grabbed a shotgun, filled with bird pellets and began firing.   The cousin reportedly grabbed another shotgun and began firing back. Both men were hit several times with pellets, but no one else was injured. The sheriff's department says the man who started the fight faces aggravated assault charges.
