AMARILLO, Texas (KVII) — A man found dead back in November was found by police to have accidentally shot himself, according to a Friday release from Amarillo police.
Just after 11 p.m. on Nov. 20, police found 33-year-old Dwight Royal Jr. dead in the road near NW 13th and North Hughes.
Royal had been shot in the upper body.
Though police initially thought the incident was a homicide, they now say witnesses, video and other evidence show that Royal shot himself by accident.
