HOUSTON — Raul Rodriguez, a retired Baytown firefighter who shot and killed a New Caney ISD teacher in a dispute over loud music two years ago, claims he opened fire in self-defense.

And his attorneys believe a 20-minute, grainy video taken by Rodriguez on the night of the shooting proves it.

Rodriguez is facing murder charges in the death of P.E. teacher Kelly Danaher.
