Antonio Armstrong was charged with capital murder in the shootings which took place early Friday morning at the family’s home in Houston. Two other children were in the house at the time the murders took place.
According to KRPC-TV, police say Dawn was pronounced dead at the scene, while Antonio was transported to a local hospital with a gunshot wound to the head, but later died from his injuries.
Houston homicide investigator Jimmy Dodson told reporters, “This was an outstanding family. The male of the family was an absolute hard working breadwinner…He was an associate pastor in the area church. He’s a great guy. The mother was apparently a great mother, according to family members. Like I said, it was kind of the all-American family.”
Scott Binkley, a family friend, said, “Fantastic people. I have no idea why this would be happening to them…He was one of A&M’s top 25 athletes. Served the Lord. Worked in the community. Did nothing but help people constantly. We are just shocked at what happened.”
