No Arrests in Zavalla Shooting

There have still been no arrests or charges in a weekend shooting that left a Zavalla man dead.

Thirty year old Robert Thompson was shot to death Sunday night by his 15-year-old stepson. The teen was not charged because he used the 410 shotgun in self defense.

Thompson went to his wife's home upset about car parts she had given away. He apparently started beating the woman, that's when her son pulled out his gun and killed him.

Thompson died at the scene from a gunshot wound to the chest.

Zavalla authorities said it is not illegal for a teenager to own certain types of guns. A lot of East Texas kids use the same type of weapon to hunt small animals.
