Police investigate deadly domestic disturbance

Texas City and La Marque police investigate a man’s death at a house in the 1400 block of Duroux Road in La Marque on Thursday, Jan. 21, 2021.


Police on Thursday arrested a man in connection to a shooting death earlier that day, officials said.

Daryl Glenn Gardiner, 34, has been charged with murder, said detective Evelyn Arredondo, a spokeswoman for the La Marque Police Department. His bond is set at $250,000.

Witnesses told police Gardiner lived in the same residence as the victim, Adam Elihu Miller, 36, and the two got into an argument, Arredondo said.

Police allege the argument escalated and eventually Miller was shot several times, Arredondo said.

Officers responded to the initial call about a shooting at about 4 a.m. in the 1400 block of Duroux Road, officials said.

Detectives arrested Gardiner hours later, Arredondo said.
