HEMPHILL, Texas — A Texas father is facing a first-degree murder charge after authorities said he fatally shot a man accused of abusing his daughter, Sabine County Sheriff Tom Maddox said.
Hall told authorities that he had come to the home after learning that McQueen had choked Hall's daughter, who was McQueen's girlfriend, during a dispute about marijuana, KTRE reported. The woman told her sister about the attack, who alerted Hall and Hall's wife, deputies said. Hall and the two other women then went to the home, where McQueen "came to the front door with a gun in an aggravated manner," according to the news station. Hall then fired at McQueen, hitting him in the chest, deputies said.
