Former NFL Player and Wife Shot by Teenage Son


Former NFL player Antonio Armstrong and his wife were fatally shot by their teenage son in the family’s Houston home early Friday, police said. Armstrong’s wife, Dawn, was pronounced dead in their bedroom after their 16-year-old son dialed 911 around 1:30 a.m., police sources told KTRK-TV. 

Antonio Armstrong was taken to the hospital where he later died. Investigators who searched the southwest Houston home found a gun still smoking with a note next to it reading, “I’ve been watching you,” the TV station reported. Police arrested the 16-year-old boy. Sources close to the investigation said he was likely to be charged as an adult. “There was nothing left out. There was no neglect or anything. 

There was nothing that even could possibly have justified this situation,” Dawn Armstrong’s cousin, Vaun Lee, told reporters. “This doesn’t even make sense. It makes no sense.” All three of the couple’s children — including a 20-year-old son and a teenage daughter — were in the Palmetto St. home at the time of the shooting. All were unharmed, Houston police homicide investigator Jimmy Dodson told the Houston Chronicle. 

They own a fitness company called 1st Class Training with three locations in the Houston area. Investigators were working Friday to figure out what may have led to the shooting because there was no sign of tension within the family, Dodson said. “This was an outstanding family. 

The male of the family was an absolute hard-working breadwinner,” Dodson told KPRC-TV. “He was an associate pastor in an 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.” Antonio Armstrong, 42, starred at linebacker for the Texas A&M Aggies. 

So sad...
