Texas grand jury refuses to indict homeowner who shot deputy during marijuana raid
A grand jury has refused to indict a man who shot and killed a deputy during a raid on his home.
Charged with capital murder, Henry Goedrich Magee was initially arrested following a raid on his home where he shot a deputy who he thought was an intruder.
The Burleson County Sheriff’s Department conducted an early morning raid on Magee’s home for marijuana and it was during this raid that Sgt. Adam Sowders was shot and killed.
Sheriff’s deputies entered Magee’s rural home near Somerville, Texas to search for guns and marijuana. Magee was asleep at the time and thought burglars were entering his home.
Magee was charged with possession of marijuana after deputies recovered several marijuana plants.
