Ex-NFL Star Antonio Armstrong & Wife Murdered By Their 16-Year-Old Son

Antonio Armstrong & Wife Murdered By Their 16-Year-Old Son

Heartbreaking news coming out of Houston…

Former Miami Dolphins linebacker Antonio Armstrong and his wife, Dawn, were shot and killed in the bedroom of their Houston home by their 16-year-old son on Friday.

The son reportedly called 911 to report the shooting. He’s being charged as a juvenile and questioned by investigators according to NBC News.

Two of the couple’s other children were in the house when the shootings happened around 2 a.m. local time Friday and neither was hurt, the station reported.

A stunned investigator who called the Armstrongs an “all-American family” said they have not yet determined a motive.

“This was an outstanding family,” Houston police homicide investigator Jimmy Dodson told KPRC. “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.”

Police did not release the accused teen’s name because of his age.

Dawn Armstrong died at the scene, police said. Her husband was pronounced dead later at Memorial Hermann Hospital from a gunshot wound to the head.

My heart weeps for this family. I extend my deepest condolences and prayers to the Armstrong family during this tragic and difficult time.
