Wednesday, August 12, 2009 • Posted August 12, 2009

According to a press release from the Llano County Sheriff’s Department last Thursday, Llano County deputies, a Llano Police Officer and Llano EMS responded to a shooting at a residence in the 200 block of Lagitos Lane, in western Llano County, at 11:21 Wednesday evening. The officers discovered that Roxianne Steelman, 24, had been shot once in the head; she was airlifted to University Medical Center Brackenridge in Austin, where she remains in critical condition in the Intensive Care unit as of Tuesday morning.

Police arrested her brother-in-law, Hilary Matthew “Matt” Steelman, who apparently had been involved in an altercation with the victim before shooting her. He lived in a separate residence on the same property; he is charged with the first degree felony of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and is currently being held in the Llano County Jail under a $100,000 bond.
