Lubbock DA's Office To Review Fatal Standoff Case Involving 80-Yr-Old Suspect

The elderly woman involved in Wednesday's storage facility standoff has been released, pending the filing of any charges.

Fay Ralston lived inside a storage unit at the University Self Storage, near 4th and Avenue T. Police say she used a shotgun to kill 45-year-old Lino Torres, as he allegedly tried to break into the place she called home.

Police say, for the last ten years, Ralston depended on the kindness of strangers. She is now in the care of Adult Protective Services.

The case will be turned over to the Lubbock County District Attorney's Office for review.
