Witness testimony could help Texas Father on trial for alleged shooting death

 A Texas father's claims he did not fatally shoot a drunken driver who caused an accident that killed his two sons seem to have received a boost from testimony by prosecution witnesses.

David Barajas is on trial in the 2012 shooting death of Jose Banda. He is accused of shooting Banda near Alvin minutes after the intoxicated driver plowed into a vehicle Barajas and his two sons had been pushing along a rural road.

At Barajas' trial Wednesday in Angleton, an ex-deputy and a current deputy told jurors they failed to note in reports that more gunfire had taken place well after Banda was shot.

Later Wednesday, Banda's cousin gave contradictory testimony about whether Barajas had hit Banda before allegedly shooting him.

Alvin is 30 miles southeast of Houston.
