MIDLAND - It turns out the gun used to kill Midland County Deputy Mike Naylor was stolen.
Texas Rangers tell NewsWest 9, the gun Dan Higgins used to fire at Naylor was stolen from a home.
Back in October, Sergeant Naylor and another deputy went to Higgins house to serve a warrant.
Higgins holed himself up in his home and ended up shooting Naylor in the head, killing him.
Last month, Higgins pled guilty to capital murder charges and is now serving a life sentence.
