Police catch alleged shooter of Texas high school football coach
Investigators say a suspect in a shooting at a high school in Canton, Texas, has been taken into custody. Authorities say Jeffrey Robertson was caught near the area where they'd earlier found his abandoned truck.
They say he's the father of a football player at the high school -- and that he shot and wounded the team's coach this morning before fleeing in the pick-up truck. Police say the coach was shot in the chest. There's no word on his condition. Police Chief Mike Echols says Robertson had been banned from the school and told not to attend school functions.
A state investigator says authorities had reports that Robertson and the coach had an "altercation." Meanwhile, the father of another athlete says Robertson had threatened to kill his son last year, following a teasing incident.
Officials say nearly 20 other people rescued from the back of the rig early Sunday were hospitalized in dire condition, many with extreme dehydration and heatstroke.Full Story >
