Robert Fadal, a Texas physician, is accused of fatally shooting a couple in his driveway Sunday after they had come over to help his mother.
The Guadalupe County Sheriff’s Office said Dr. Fadal II, 56, of Seguin, Texas, shot the couple, Anthony and Tiffany Strait, “for no apparent reason,” according to the Seguin Gazette. The couple had lived near Fadal for years, according to Anthony Strait’s brother, James. They reportedly stopped with their three children to help Fadal’s mother move some furniture just as they were on their way to celebrate Tiffany’s birthday.
The children reportedly saw their parents gunned down.
“I heard this voice, ‘Oh, my God. Oh, my God.’ Then I heard two more shots,” Rudy Soto, a neighbor, told KSAT-TV.
Authorities said Fadal first shot Anthony, 27. Members of the Strait family said Tiffany, 30, cried out, and then Fadal turned his gun on her as the children watched. Authorities said Anthony died at the scene, while Tiffany passed away at a hospital shortly afterward.
