Tragedy: Ex-NFL Player & Wife Shot Dead By Their Son


Former NFL linebacker Antonio Armstrong and his wife, Dawn, have been shot and killed inside their home in Houston.

Police were called to the Armstrong’s home in Bellaire, Texas, about 2:15am on Friday. Dawn was found dead at the scene, while Antonio, 42 – who suffered a gunshot wound to the head was rushed to hospital where he later died.

The couple’s 16-year-old son has been charged with shooting his parents dead. The couple had two other children, a 20-year-old son and a 12-year-old girl.

Houston police said they had yet to determine a motive.

‘It was kind of the All-American family, that’s why we’re trying to get down to figure out what’s going on in this household,’ homicide detective Jimmy Dodson told KHOU.

Investigators who searched the home found a smoking gun next to a note next reading, ‘I’ve been watching you’, according to KTRK.

‘They’re the family that everyone wanted to be like… her and Antonio together, they are what they call a power couple,’ Dawn’s cousin, Vaun Lee Armstrong told reporters.
