One man was fatally shot during a home invasion in the rural community of Seagoville late Wednesday night.
Police say William Wood was shot in the head at about 8:00 when as many as three men confronted him at his Dallas County home in the 1500 block of Ballard Road.
The 47-year-old was later transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
After the shooting, Wood's wife was left to contend with the intruders, who police said forced her to the ground and demanded money.
"She told them she didn't have any money. They ran out of the house," Seagoville Police Capt. Ray Calverley said.
Police said the men were likely wearing masks and that there was not a good description of the attackers.
They also said the men might have been driving an older model four-door dark vehicle.
The trio did not take anything form the home, officials said.
Officials say such violent crime is rare in Seagoville.
