TX: Senior Citizen Shoots, Kills, Robbery Suspect

The Angleton Police Department has released the identity of the man killed in the early Tuesday morning shooting as 23-year-old Louis Dewayne Norris. Norris was involved in a disturbance at a residence in the 400 block of West Cedar Street when a citizen shot Norris once in the chest killing him at the scene. There are no charges being filed thus far, as the shooting appears to be justified in self-defense. As is standard in all shootings, the circumstances in this case will be examined by the Grand Jury to determine whether evidence exists to proceed with any criminal charges.

This incident occurred in the early morning of Tuesday, June 14, 2016 at 12:09 a.m., when Angleton Police Department officers were dispatched to the house on West Cedar Street in Angleton after a 911 caller reported a person being shot. Officers arrived on scene and found Norris to be deceased and began processing the crime scene which included interviewing witnesses.

Detectives believe Norris is connected with other recent cases of robberies which involved elderly victims. Detectives urge Angleton citizens to please contact the Angleton Police Department if they have information pertaining to any unreported assaults or robberies, especially which involve the elderly.Source
