Disturbance call ends in suicide

Hays County Pct. 5 Justice of the Peace Scott Cary inspects a garage door that had been damaged during a SWAT standoff situation July 20 involving a barricaded subject. One man was found dead and his wife suffered non-life-threatening injures after what Buda Police Chief Bo Kidd said appeared to be an attempted murder/suicide at a home in Garlic Creek. Authorities identified the man as Sejdalija Smajic, 53, who, according to police, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His wife, identified as Mejra Smajic, was found by authorities in the front yard of the home and had been shot. The investigation into the incident is ongoing. Members of the Garlic Creek community set up a GoFundMe page which raised roughly $3,700 in five days by 59 people to assist the family with expenses. To donate, visit
