Domestic Violence Suspected In Deadly Texas A&M Shooting

We have repeatedly addressed what a threat to safety domestic violence poses in our nation's workplaces and schools.

Deadly assaults on innocent people by disgruntled partners put the safety of all at risk, as Monday's active shooter episode on the campus of Texas A&M University reveals.

Two sisters, Abbany Matts, 20, and Deja Matts, 19, were shot dead and authorities say domestic violence is believed to be the motive.

(Sisters Abbaney and Deja Matts were murdered at Texas A&M University, domestic violence is suspected).

A 21-year-old man authorities believe to be Abbaney's ex-boyfriend has been arrested and charged with the capital murder of the two sisters.

Showing how out-of-control domestic violence can be, the man is suspected of also wounding Abbaney's 2-year-old son during the attack.

The child was taken to the hospital for treatment. He has since been released to the custody of grieving family members.
