LSO: Stepfather killed son in self-defense

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lt. Bryan Taylor with the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office says one man is dead after his stepfather shot him in self-defense.

It happened around 10:30 a.m. Friday at R&S Used Appliances in the 1500 block of 83rd Street.

Family members tell us 49-year-old Ricky Daniel came into 77-year old Robert Pool's business and threatened him. Family members say there were customers inside when Daniel ran full speed at Pool and attacked him. Pool shot him twice. Daniel was taken to UMC, but passed away around noon.

Family members say Pool had no choice.

They say Daniel had been threatening his stepfather for months, but it came to a head today because he was on synthetic marijuana. They believe this would have never happened if Daniel had gotten the help he needed.

Sheriff's Office representatives say they don't expect to file any charges at this time.
