Man charged in Odessa home invasion

ODESSA, TX (KWES) - Odessa police arrested a man they believe took part in a home invasion that turned deadly last month.

Back on September 30, OPD responded to Arbor Oaks Apartments where they found Al McGruder, 38, dead from a gunshot wound to the head.

An investigation found that McGruder was shot, in self-defense by a resident of the home, after he and another man kicked in the front door of the apartment.

Authorities say the other suspected intruder, Christopher Starling, 30, turned himself in Sunday afternoon.

Starling was arrested and charged with burglary of a habitation.
