Get the shocking details on Antonio Armstrong + Wife Dawn on the flip…
Dawn was believed to have died at the scene of the shooting, and Antonio later died at Memorial Hermann Hospital as a result of a gunshot wound to the head.
This is disgusting that his own son would kill his father.
The Comeback reports:
Armstrong’s son is being charged and questioned as a juvenile, the police did not publicly reveal the teen’s name. According to reports, the Armstrong couple’s two other children were in the house at the time of the shooting, which occurred around 2 a.m. on Friday. Police stated that neither of the children were hurt at the scene. The community is shocked and saddened by the sudden deaths of Armstrong and his wife.
Houston police homicide investigator Jimmy Dodson told KPRC:
“This was an outstanding family.”
Antonio had a memorable career in the NFL. He accomlished many things and even earned AP All-America honors his senior season en route to being drafted in the sixth round by the San Francisco 49ers. An ankle injury resulted in his being released by the team and being picked up by the Miami Dolphins, where he became a part of the active roster, appearing in four games and registering four tackles during the 1995 season. He signed with the St. Louis Rams during the next offseason but failed to make the roster after training camp, and spent several seasons in the Candian Football League before injuries cut his career short.
No matter what Antonio Armstrong made the best of his NFL career, but on Friday it was all taken away with the pull of a trigger, by his own son?
What drove his own son to kill the 43 year old and his wife Dawn.
The Dolphins also sent their thoughts and condolences upon hearing of the couple’s unfortunate deaths.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends during this difficult time,” the team said.
“He was an associate pastor in the area church. He’s a great guy. The mother was apparently a great mother, according to family members.”
