According to Santa Fe attorney Dan Cron, brothers Samuel and Daniel Pauly had no idea it was three New Mexico State Police Officers outside their Glorieta home Tuesday night.
Instead, they thought intruders were on their property when they saw flashlights out their window not long after a road rage incident involving Daniel Pauly on Interstate 25 as he was driving home from his job at Geronimo restaurant in Santa Fe.
So when they fired warning shots in the air trying to scare the intruders off (their side of the story), police took that as shots being fired at them (police side of the story) and the cops fired back, killing Samuel Pauly.
The brothers have no criminal history in New Mexico.
