"Santa Claus" Charged In Deadly Shooting

Posted: Updated:
(KXAN) -

A man dressed as Santa Claus is the suspect in a shooting that left one person dead Sunday in Austin, Texas.

Randall Gaston Jones, 32, has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault and a murder charge was filed Monday evening.

Prior to the shooting, people inside the home told police Jones was "highly intoxicated" and they asked him to calm down by going to his room, which he did. However, a short time later, Jones came out of his room and fired one shot into the ground, police say.

"While everyone else scattered, Michael [McCloskey] went after Jones in attempt to protect everybody," said Lt. Jason Staniszewski during a Monday afternoon press conference. McCloskey, 37, suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his body during the altercation.

McCloskey died at the hospital Sunday afternoon. Two women were taken to the hospital and a fourth person was treated at the scene.
