FORMER CFL'ER ANTONIO ARMSTRONG KILLED IN TEXAS

HOUSTON - Former CFL linebacker Antonio Armstrong and his wife Dawn were fatally shot at their home in Houston on Friday and a 16-year-old boy has been charged as a juvenile with murder in the slayings.

Texas A&M University, where Armstrong played his collegiate football, identified the victims in a statement.

Police said officers discovered the wounded couple about 2 a.m. Friday. Dawn Armstrong died at the scene, and Antonio Armstrong was pronounced dead at Memorial Hermann Hospital hours later with a gunshot wound to the head. He was 42.

The suspect's identity is being withheld because of his age.

Armstrong started his CFL career in 1998 with the B.C. Lions where he played two seasons before being traded to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 2000.

The six foot one, 235 pounder was an East Division all-star in 2000 while also earning Winnipeg's defensive player of the year honours.
