    what a strange affidavit IMO

    it looks like it's typed on an old word processor

    it doesn't even give details about the supposed vandalism to his car ... or who the other witnesses are ... or addresses etc. - is this for real?

    I thought the same thing. It is LR, though...
    I got the link from this news article. KTHV is legit.

    I was told on a firearms forum I frequent that this would have been legal in TX (they have a section about what NOT to do if you're a gun owner, this guy and the Dunn case in FL are being heavily discussed).

    Why it looks different - it's an arrest report?

    Don't we more commonly see
    LE affidavit provided to judge, so judge will sign (or not) arrest warrant?

    This looks waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay diff,
    as this is LE/Det. arrest report to his sgt. stating
    subject he questioned about a shooting admitted shooting at that time and place in question.
    "Mr. Noble stated that he opened his front door and started shooting."

    At or soon after that point (poss after further consult w sgt or others),
    LE/Det. had prob cause to arrest this subject; so he did.
    "I then charged Mr. Noble with one count of Murder in the First Degree...." etc.

    Just spitballing here and I could be wrong.

    According to court documents, a judge presiding over the case has scheduled a trial... for November 3 after 50-year-old Willie James Noble was declared competent to stand trial by state doctors.

    November 2015, trial underway:

    Noble told police in the recording that he heard someone outside of his home that night and went outside to see his son's car covered in toilet paper and leaves. He went back inside and got his gun, telling his wife "whoever it is, they'll be back."

    Noble said in the recording that he ran out of the front door and started shooting when he noticed from his bathroom window that the people came back.

    "I wasn't aiming at nobody. I was just shooting. I wasn't trying to hit nobody. I was just trying to scare them," Noble said. "I wasn't trying to hit nobody. I wasn't trying to take nobody's life."
    Willie Noble was sentenced to 30 years in prison after being found guilty of 1st degree murder in the death of 15-year-old Adrian Broadway. He will be eligible for parole after 21 years.
