The shooting occurred in the 1400 block of South Pecan Street, near the University of Texas at Arlington. No one has been arrested. The case has been sent to the Tarrant County District Attorney's Office for further review, police said.

Very little detail. There must be much more, for the police to rule it as self-defense so quickly.

Who needs details in Texas? “He needed killin’” is a legal defense ;)

He was at his ex-wifes house. If she is your ex-wife, that's probably not the best place to hang out if you want to stay out of trouble. Just sayin.....

What a bunch of idiots. Newsflash - here are the FACTS that a happy yellow journalism reporter didnt care to obtain before printing the article. Rodney was NOT an ex-husband, he still lived in the house when his wife wasnt on-gain/off-again and taking her meds, the father-in-law was not an EX and the shooting (as it turns out) was not in self-defense. This case is going to the grand jury for a murder charge.
