A horrific crime is being reported out of Texas. Antonio Armstrong, a former Texas A&M football player and NFL linebacker, was gunned down along with his wife Dawn. The couple was found shot in the bedroom of their home in Bellaire, Texas, an exclusive suburb of Houston.
Antonio was rushed to Memorial Hermann Hospital where he is said to be in critical condition. Unfortunately his wife, Dawn, was pronounced dead at the scene. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And here's the CRAZIEST part of the story. The couple's 16-year-old son has been arrested and charged with the murder of his mother. According to local media, a source close to the investigation said the accused son called 911. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The double shooting has shocked all that knew the "All-American" family. Dawn's cousin, Vaun Lee stated, "There was nothing left out. There was no neglect or anything. Nothing that could even possibly justify the situation. This makes no sense. No sense." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
ABC News reports that the Armstrongs ran First Class Training, a gym in their community. The station also cites that Antonio was a pastor and motivational speaker, as well as an advocate for health and fitness.
While police are NOT RELEASING the motive, multiple people on Facebook are claiming that the boy was UPSET that his father refused to buy him an expensive pair of Nike Jordan sneakers.
