Bowie County deputies arrest suspect in Maud shooting

    Bowie County deputies were dispatched to a shooting Tuesday evening in the 500 block of Birch Street in Maud, Texas.

    Captain David Grable arrived on scene and found a shooting victim lying in the roadway being attended to by a citizen that had called 911. The victim was bleeding badly, and a tourniquet was placed on his leg to improve his chances of survival. LifeNet Ambulance Service personnel arrived and took over life saving measures that were ultimately unsuccessful.

    Larry Dewayne Kirby, 39, of Maud died as a result of his injuries. The victim allegedly told the 911 caller that he had been shot by his brother-in-law, Billy John Scott, of Maud TX.

    Scott, 50, had fled the scene prior to deputies arriving. Scott was reached by telephone and arrangements were made for his surrender. He was taken into custody without incident and booked into the Bi-State Jail for Murder. His bond has not been determined at this time.
