In a terrifying moment, a man shoots his partner’s ex-husband during a child custody dispute, but the shooter claims it was “justifiable homicide.”

During a child custody battle, a man shoots and kills his partner’s ex-husband before claiming “justifiable homicide.”

Just moments before Mr Read was shot and killed, William “Kyle” Carruth and Chad Read got into a heated argument over child custody outside of Mr Carruth’s Lubbock home.

Mr Read’s widow and Mr Carruth’s lawyers have each released a video of the fatal shooting.

Mr Read is seen arguing with his ex-wife over child custody in the videos when Mr Carruth tells him to leave, then steps back inside the house with a gun.

“Use it, motherf***er, because God damn it, I’ll take it from you and f***ing use it on you,” Mr Read yells at Mr Carruth.

Mr Carruth takes a step back and fires a warning shot at Mr Read’s feet into the ground.

Mr Read takes the gun and swings it at Mr Carruth, who steps back off the porch and fires two shots, killing him instantly.

Mr Carruth defends the shooting, saying, “I told you, I told all of y’all to leave.” Jennifer Read can be heard saying, “Call 911.”

Mr Carruth’s attorneys claim self-defense, claiming that Mr Read’s death was “justifiable homicide.”

“All Texans may lawfully brandish a firearm to protect themselves, their property, and their business,” said David M Guinn, one of Mr Carruth’s attorneys.

“When Kyle did that, Chad Read charged at him and attempted to take the gun away from him right away.

“As a result of this, he was able to sling Kyle 180 degrees around on Kyle’s patio.”

“Continuing his advance on Kyle, he raised his left leg, threatening him and posing an immediate threat.”

Kyle was quick to respond.

“This was a homicide that was justified.”

According to local media, no charges have been filed against Mr Carruth for the shooting on November 5.

The lawyer praised the handling of the case by the Lubbock Police Department.

“LPD knew they didn’t have probable cause to arrest him, so they didn’t.”

Kyle cooperated with authorities.

“We are hoping that a grand jury in Lubbock will conduct a thorough investigation of all the facts and clear Mr Carruth.”

“Everyone regrets the entire situation,” he continued.

“Despite the fact that Read arrived unarmed, he declared his intention to kill Kyle Carruth with Kyle’s own gun and took swift and powerful action to do so.”

Jennifer Read, Mr. Read’s widow, has filed a petition to reclaim custody of his children from Christina Read, their mother.

Castle laws exist in a number of states in the United States, allowing homeowners to defend themselves with reasonable actions…
