HOUSTON – A former Texas A&M and Miami Dolphins linebacker and his wife were fatally shot at their home in Houston, and a 16-year-old boy has been charged as a juvenile with murder in the slayings.
Texas A&M University identified the victims in a statement as Antonio and Dawn Armstrong. Police said officers discovered the wounded couple about 2 a.m. Friday. Dawn Armstrong died at the scene, and Antonio Armstrong was pronounced dead at Memorial Hermann Hospital hours later with a gunshot wound to the head.
The suspect's identity is being withheld because of his age.
Texas A&M issued a statement Friday saying Antonio Armstrong was a letterman who played for the Aggies from 1991 to 1994 and described him as a cornerstone of the A&M "Wrecking Crew" defense. He was named first-team Associated Press All-America linebacker in 1994 and was drafted in the sixth round of the 1995 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers.
