A New Diana High School teacher was found dead of a gunshot wound Friday afternoon at his home.
David Gross, an agriculture science teacher who was a Union Grove resident, was found by Upshur County sheriff’s officers in his home on a private road off Union Grove Road.
Deputies arrived in response to a call received by sheriff’s dispatch about 2:40 p.m., Sheriff Anthony Betterton said.
Gross, a husband and father, was pronounced dead by Pct. 1 Justice of the Peace Rhonda Welch. Betterton said an autopsy had been ordered.
It was unclear Friday night whether authorities were seeking a suspect in connection with the death.
Gross had been at the Houston Livestock Show, where his students had been showing animals, Betterton said. He had returned to his home Friday, but intended to return to Houston. Gross’ exact age was not available, but Betterton said he was in his mid-30s.
