Domestic disturbance turns violent, 3 people seriously injured

August 15, 2013

Three Big Spring residents were seriously injured during a domestic disturbance that turned extremely violent Wednesday evening.

Big Spring police responded to the rear area of 406 Dallas in reference to a “shots fired” call shortly after 8 p.m. Wednesday and discovered three people seriously injured, Big Spring Police Department Public Information Officer Sgt. Tony Everett said.

Delia Cantu, 47, and her son, Saul, 19, both of 406 Dallas, had suffered gunshot wounds — Delia to the face and Saul to the chest. A third person, Delia's common-law husband Frank Galan, 36, had been struck in the head with what appeared to be a baseball bat, Everett said.

Both of the Cantus were airlifted from the scene to an Odessa hospital, while Galan was first transported by ambulance to Scenic Mountain Medical Center's emergency room, then to an Abilene hospital by helicopter.
No condition update on the three people was available as of press time today.

Everett said officers were still trying to determine the details behind the incident.

“Investigators were unable to interview the three, due to the seriousness of their injuries,” he said. “One family member was interviewed after the incident, but details are still sketchy … Investigators are waiting to interview the three when they are medically able.”

A .22 caliber handgun and a baseball bat were recovered at the scene, Everett added.
