A man donned a bulletproof vest, picked up his AK-47 assault rifle, and started killing people in Tyler Texas yesterday, apparently angry about a recent ruling about his back child support. Here’s a report about it on KXXV 25. Here’s another report from the Longview News-Journal.
The dead include the man, David Hernandez Arroyo, his ex-wife Maribel Estrada, and a bystander who tried to help her. Arroyo also wounded the couple’s adult son.
The divorced parents were due court as part of their child support dispute. Arroyo opened fire as his ex-wife and son were entering the courtroom and then fled in his pickup truck with deputies’ bullets bouncing off his body armor. They eventually were able to shoot him in the head and kill him.
