Followup TX: Brothers who shot Stepbrother Arrested
Clanton said he pointed his gun towards Bishop, but Clanton does not remember firing his gun and that he could have blacked out.
Clanton called 9-1-1, and according to the news release Clanton was extremely emotional when he told dispatchers “my brother had a gun and I shot him.”
A .357 Magnum revolver was recovered from the passenger seat of Clanton’s truck. A spent cartridge was in the firing position and four unspent cartridges were in the cylinder.
Investigators found Bishop behind the steering wheel of his truck with a single gunshot wound to his head. A loaded semi-automatic pistol was found in Bishop’s lap. There is no evidence that gun had been fired.
