One Man Dead After Disturbance

A disturbance in Henderson County has left one man dead. Around 4 o'clock Wednesday evening, officials found smoke coming from a home on county road 4709. The man inside, 83 year old Weldon Buford had a gun. His ex-son in law says Buford became enraged during a family argument and pulled the gun on him and his ex-wife. They got out of the home, just before Buford allegedly began the fire. Police tried to negotiate with Buford, but never heard from him. They then went inside to rescue him because of the increasing smoke. When they got inside, he was already dead. Officials are sending the body to Dallas for an autopsy.
