VERNON (KFDX/KJTL) — The arrest affidavit for the Vernon man accused of firing multiple shots and killing a 27-year-old father does not shed much light on what led to the shooting or reveal many new details.
André Sandoval was found with multiple gunshot wounds lying in a vacant lot on Deaf Smith in Vernon Tuesday night, Oct. 11, 2022.
54-year-old Bradford Thompson is charged with his murder.
According to the affidavit, police arrived on the scene around 7 p.m. and spoke with a witness to the shooting.
The witness said he was in his living room when he heard loud booms outside. He said he went outside and saw his neighbor, Thompson, shooting a man. He said he yelled several times for Thompson to stop shooting, but Thompson did not stop until he emptied the clip.
He said when Thompson stopped shooting, Thompson took off a black shirt with skulls and threw it down.
He said police officers then arrived and put Thompson in custody.
