South Carolina teenager Ryan Langdale’s hangout with his 17-year-old cousin turned bloody when the 19-year-old shot his cousin after warning him not to eat his salt and vinegar potato chips.

Langdale, from Colleton County, initially told police officers who arrived at the home where the pair had been hanging out that his cousin had shot himself while cleaning his hunting rifle. The 17-year-old, who suffered life-threatening injuries, was quickly rushed to the hospital where he received timely treatment.

The cousin eventually told the cops when he had recovered more that the story Langdale told them was not true. The cousin said that Langdale said “Do not touch my chips, or I’ll shoot you,” before shooting him. The cousin claims that Langdale shot him despite the fact he never actually ate the chips.

Noting that Langdale had switched weapons at the crime scene and identified the wrong weapon to officers, the deputies raided his home after procuring a search warrant. The weapon believed to be used in the shooting was recovered and arrest warrants were obtained for Langdale.
