HALLSVILLE, Texas (AP) - Police in East Texas are investigating the shooting death of a man one week before he was to go on trial for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Investigators in Harrison County tell the Longview News-Journal (https://bit.ly/RoryiR) that 51-year-old Marc Mathison was fatally shot twice at his home at about 8 a.m. Tuesday. He was pronounced dead an hour later.

Harrison County Administrative Investigator Jay Webb said a woman called for an ambulance and later admitted shooting Mathison.

She had not been arrested as of Monday night.

Mathison was set to go on trial later this month in connection with a 2012 incident in which he allegedly shot a shotgun in the air and threatened another person.

The shooting took place in Hallsville, about 130 miles east of Dallas.
