BREAKING: Gunman killed brother-in-law in Hobe Sound shooting


Martin County sheriff’s detectives continued Friday to investigate a domestic shooting Thursday night that left one man dead and his brother-in-law in custody.

No charges have been filed as of Friday. Authorities 37-year-old James White was shot and killed by his brother-in-law, Adrian Dixon, during an altercation in front of a relative’s home on Southeast Aurora Way, south of Bridge Road and west of Federal Highway. Dixon surrendered immediately as deputies arrived on scene.

He told investigators he fired at White in self-defense. Hours before the shooting, Dixon filed for an injunction against White, which was denied, the sheriff’s office said.

White and his wife reportedly were having domestic issues. Dixon said White was angry at him for becoming involved in the situation.

He told deputies he was sitting in his car at about 6 p.m. Thursday when White pulled up and exited his vehicle. Dixon said he warned White not come any closer, then pulled a gun and fired four shots.

White was shot twice in the chest. He died at a hospital.
