TEXARKANA, Texas (KSLA) — An 87-year-old man is dead, killed by a self-inflicted gunshot wound as authorities were trying to execute a search warrant as part of a felony investigation.
It happened late the afternoon of Thursday, Aug. 4 at a home in the 3700 block of Galleria Oaks Drive in Texarkana, Texas.
