Security Guard Fatally Shoots Wife in Dallas Tower Lobby: Police

Dallas police say a man is in custody after fatally shooting his wife just after midnight Sunday morning at the Bank of America tower in Oak Cliff.

Police were called at about 12:02 a.m. to the building in the 400 block of South Zang Boulevard, where the 30-year-old woman was found dead.

The woman's identity has not yet been released.

Investigators said the woman came to the Bank of America tower, where her husband, 34-year-old David Thompson, works as a licensed commissioned security officer, to confront him about alleged marriage infidelity. The two began to have a physical struggle, and Thompson later told police he believed his wife was reaching for his pistol, so he shot her in self defense, according to the arrest affidavit.

Thompson called 911, providing the dispatcher with his location and the location of his gun.

He was later arrested and charged with murder.

Police said the woman did not have any weapons in her possession at the time of the shooting.
