Mixon had been reportedly involved in two disturbances at local business just prior to the incident at 500 E. Phillips. There is no known relationship between Mixon and the occupants of the incident address. Mixon arrived at the location, engaged in an incoherent verbal altercation with the residents, displayed and pointed a handgun at the victims, and then left the location and returned within minutes as officers were responding.

Upon the first officer’s arrival, he observed Mixon standing next to his vehicle firing shots into the residence where the victims were reportedly present. The officer discharged his weapon at Mixon in protection of the occupants believed to be in the home.

The officer involved is a six-year veteran of the Conroe Police Department. An autopsy is pending and there are no further details available as the investigation continues. Chief Christy and the City of Conroe offer their condolences to the family of Mr. Mixon.
