TX: Pottsboro Shooting Ruled Self Defense
“The case came down to a claim of self-defense,” Grayson County District Attorney Joe Brown said in a statement about the grand jury’s decision not to indict Vincent Glen Smith, 62, of Pottsboro, in the shooting death of Charles Eugene Carter, 44.
Deputies with the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office were called to a house in the 500 block of Cedar Oaks Road at 3:44 p.m. on Jan. 11. When they arrived, deputies found Mr. Carter dead. He had been shot in the head. Smith, the homeowner at the residence, said he had allowed Mr. Carter and his girlfriend to live in a camper on the property for several weeks.
