A man who was being evicted from a halfway house in
Richardson shot another person and then killed himself.
It happened at about 9:30 p.m. Monday at a house in the 1400
block of Lamp Post. It is run by a faith-based non-profit and helps people
recovering from drug and alcohol addiction.
Police said the man was told to leave for violating the
rules. He got mad, grabbed a gun and shot another resident in the leg. Then as
responding officers approached him he committed suicide.
The suspect's name has not been released. The victim's
injuries are not life threatening.
