A man who police say was killed by his brother at a Benbrook home on Wednesday has been identified as Thomas Powley, 58, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner.

Police found Powley, of Fort Worth, dead of a gunshot wound in the backyard of a home on San Angelo Drive.

Officers had responded to the home on a report of a shooting about 11:45 a.m., said Lt. Arvin Campbell. When they arrived, they found Powley and another man who was wounded with a gunshot to his leg.

The suspect, John Conroy, barricaded himself inside the home for almost four hours before surrendering to officers at about 3 p.m., Campbell said.

Officers exchanged gunfire with Conroy during the standoff, but nobody was injured. Conroy was “threatening towards officers and himself,” according to a Benbrook police news release.

No further details about the case were available Thursday afternoon.
