One of the participants in the America's Challenge Balloon Race says someone opened fire on his craft as it floated across Texas over the weekend.

Troy Bradley and co-pilot Shane Robinson were among six teams that lifted off from Albuquerque on Saturday.

Bradley told police that while floating about 400 feet off the ground north of Lubbock, someone started shooting at them.

He says he spotted the man shooting at the balloon and called 9-1-1.
