MCTXSheriff Investigates Shooting in Magnolia

On January 25, 2021 at about 7:40 AM the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call in
reference to a shooting in the 26500 block of South Carrol Lane in Magnolia, TX. Upon arrival, Deputies
found a white male lying on the ground with a single gunshot wound to the upper torso. The male was
pronounced deceased by EMS while on scene. Deputies learned that the deceased male was damaging a
vehicle on that property and confronted one of the residents of the property with what appeared to be a
weapon in his hands. The resident fired a single shot from a small caliber rifle, striking the deceased in the
torso, and then immediately called 911.

Detectives with the Homicide-Violent Crimes Unit and Crime Scene Investigators responded to the scene,
along with prosecutors from the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office. This is still an active
investigation, and this case will be presented to the Grand Jury for review
