Police said a disagreement between two men in a local bar transitioned to angry text messages after the bar closed, then escalated to a physical confrontation that resulted in gunfire at an apartment. Conroe police said 25-year-old Austin Revel Cargill allegedly shot and killed Jordan Robert Eakins, 26, around 2:45 a.m. at Cargill’s residence in the Forest Creek Apartments off of North Loop 336. . . . It was the county’s third fatal shooting in less than a month that could test the Castle Law, or Senate Bill 378, which went into effect in Texas Sept. 1 and extends people’s rights to use deadly force without retreat for self-defense purposes in their home, vehicle or workplace.
