Ex-NFL Player Antonio Armstrong & Wife Killed, 16-Year-Old Son Charged with Murder

Antonio Armstrong, a former NFL player for the Miami Dolphins, and his wife Dawn Armstrong are both dead after being shot in their home in Houston, Tex.

The couple’s 16-year-old son has reportedly been charged with their murder, according to NBC News. The shootings happened at 2am on Friday (July 29) and the couple’s two other children were also home at the time.

Dawn died at the scene while Antonio was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the head and he succumbed to his injuries there.

“This was an outstanding family. The male of the family was an absolute hard working breadwinner,” Houston police homicide Investigator Jimmy Dodson told KPRC. “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. Like I said, it was kind of the all-American family.”

Antonio was a star player for Texas A&M during his college career and had a short-lived NFL stint in the 1990s with the Miami Dolphins.

We send our thoughts and condolences to the Armstrong family during this difficult time.

    Jesus. I mean we all had our teenage mood swings and hated our parents one point in time, but what kind of person shoots their own parents? The kid must suffer from some type of mental illness.
