GEORGETOWN — An Avery Ranch homeowner has been indicted by a grand jury for murder in connection with the February shooting of an unarmed man in his driveway.

Fred Yazdi, 47, was indicted Wednesday for the incident in which he allegedly shot and killed a 23-year-old man who was trying to run away from the man's property, according to court records.

Enrique Recio was shot and killed outside Yazdi's home in the 11300 block of Staked Plains Drive, after Recio crashed his car less than a mile from Yazdi's home.

Yazdi initially told police that when he saw the man, he was hiding beneath Yazdi's wife's vehicle. Yazdi also reportedly told the man that if he tried to flee, he was going to shoot him.

When the man tried to run away, Yazdi allegedly opened fire.

Welcome to the discussion.
