Four Injured in Shooting After Facebook Dispute.

ALLEN – Four people were injured by gunfire during a street fight late Tuesday that started as a dispute between two groups on Facebook, police say.

Just after 11:30 p.m. police responded to a shooting call in the 500 block of Hawthorne Drive near Bethany Road and Jupiter Road.

They say a group of seven individuals from Allen and nine individuals from Dallas had been arguing on Facebook throughout the evening before the group from Dallas drove to Allen.

There was an altercation on the street and that’s when one of the people from Dallas opened fire.

Police are still investigating and could not release any additional details about the online dispute or the ages and genders of those involved.

The unidentified suspect is in custody facing unknown charges. The other eight people in the Dallas group were detained for further questioning.

All four of the victims will survive and are recovering at an area hospital.

Pistol-Packing Grandma Scared Off Armed Intruder

A Texas grandma was not about to go down without a fight.

Rebbie Roberson, 74, was just about to watch the news Sunday night when someone wearing gloves and a mask broke into her home.

“And when I started to get up, he was in here on me with a gun facing me right to my face.”

What she did next took the gunman by surprise.

Now, Bowie County Sheriff’s deputies are looking for the would-be bandit.

“So I had to walk right out in front of him,” Roberson said as she recalled the harrowing encounter. “I didn’t know if he was going to kill me or what.”

She had her own weapon on a table nearby.

“I reached over there and grabbed this gun. And when I swerved around, I pointed it at him and he ran.”

With her .38-caliber pistol in hand, Roberson said she followed him, all the while firing her gun and leaving bullet holes in the walls of her home.

“I’m not sure I didn’t hit him. I don’t know yet. I sure tried. I sure was hoping.”

“That was the scare of my life.”

Investigators do not believe the armed intruder was wounded.

“I tried to kill him. Anybody break in on me, I’m going to kill them. He’s going to kill me or I’m going to kill him.”

While at home, Roberson said, she always has her gun close.

But she said this was the first and, hopefully, last time she will have to use it.

“It could have been worse for both individuals, both the victim and the suspect,” Bowie County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Jeff Neal said.

KSLA reports that Sheriff’s investigators said they have no problem with the action taken by this pistol-packing granny.

“Every citizen, according to the Texas penal code, has the right to defend themselves and their family.”

Ennis PD Shoot and Kill Man Durring Traffic Stop

The incident happened at about 9 p.m. in the parking lot of The Way, The Truth and The Life Christian Center on N. Kaufman Street, where 36-year-old Moses Ruben stopped after being pulled over for going 59 mph in a 35 mph zone.

Officers discovered Ruben was carrying an invalid driver’s license and had active warrants out for his arrest from two different cities. An officer told Ruben about the warrants and asked him to get out of his vehicle.

When he refused, backup was called, and police say Ruben “made an attempt to escape apprehension by ramming his vehicle into two Ennis squad cars, narrowly missing officers as they tried to avoid being struck by his vehicle.”

Two officers fired at least three shots, with at least one hitting Ruben. Emergency crews arrived and pronounced Ruben dead at the scene.

A small crowd including friends and family gathered at the scene, but no incidents were reported and no arrests were made.

The Texas Rangers are taking over the investigation, which is standard procedure in Texas, and the officers involved will be placed on routine administrative leave.
