People inside the home where Larry Irvin was shot Saturday heard a gunshot and heard Preston Browne said “he’s dead, I shot him” and “I just killed him,” a complaint filed in Justice of the Peace Jim Cavanaugh’s office states.
    Police saw holes in a wall and ceiling of the living room at 304 N. Greenleaf, where Irvin was shot, that were consistent with shotgun pellets. Police recovered a .410 shotgun shell from one of Browne’s pockets and four additional shells from a cloth bag in the living room, the complaint states.
    Irvin, 29, who was shot in the head, died Saturday night in a Fort Worth hospital.
    Browne, 25, remains in the Brown County Jail. Browne was arrested before Irvin died and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, evidence tampering and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. His charges have not yet been upgraded since Irvin’s death.
    Police did not recover the firearm used in the shooting until Monday afternoon.
    Irvin’s mother, Teresa Closs, said earlier her son, who lived in her home, told her Saturday morning he had to go see someone. Irvin did not say where he was going or who he was going to see, Closs said, but he told her it was important.
    Irvin drove away in Closs’ truck, and she learned later he had been shot.
    According to the complaint filed by Brownwood police detective Robert Lee:
    Shortly after arriving at the Greenleaf Street home, officer Chandra Means radioed a description of Browne, who had fled on foot. Deputy Shade Tidwell, Early officer Andre Smoot and Brownwood officer Kris Salazar located Browne in the area of C.C. Woodson and South Broadway.
    Browne told the officers he was at 304 N. Greenleaf and said he was there to buy a gun from Irvin. Browne said he ran from the home after Irvin was shot and said he had thrown the gun.
    Officers took statements from the home’s three residents.
    One of the residents said she was in her bedroom, heard a gunshot and heard Browne say “he’s dead, I shot him.”
    Another resident said she was in the shower when she heard a bang and heard Browne yell “I just killed him.”
    The third resident said he was in his bedroom and heard Irvin and Browne having a conversation in the living room, then heard a loud pop. The resident said he exited his bedroom, saw Browne running out the back of the house and saw Irvin on the living room floor.
    Irvin was airlifted the Hendrick Medical Center and then taken to a John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, where he died.
    Irvin’s funeral is at 11 a.m. Friday at Blaylock Funeral Home.
