Teen Murders Former Dolphins Player Father and Mother

A former Miami Dolphins player has been fatally shot by his son. 

Texas teenager Antonio Armstrong Jr. is in jail while his hearing is postponed postponed. Armstrong Jr. is charged with capital murder in the shooting deaths of both his mother and father. 

 Authorities say the teen shot Antonio and Dawn Armstrong inside their townhouse in July. They say the teen told investigators an intruder shot his parents. 

The elder Armstrong was a first-team All-American who was taken in the sixth round of the 1995 NFL draft. He had brief stints with the San Francisco 49ers and Miami Dolphins.

A juvenile court determined Antonio Armstrong Jr. will stand trial as an adult although he was 16 when the shooting happened.
