Allen’s body was found in his family business Allen Plumbing after police responded to a call about shots fired at that location. The Dallas County Medical Research Bureau ruled that Allen’s death was a homicide.

Information released by the Grayson County District Attorney’s Office at the time of Sommers’ arrest said Allen was killed while Sommers was committing aggravated assault or fatality and while Sommers was attempting to flee committing or attempting to commit a crime.
