Shooting results in death of man
Burleson Police received a call Monday afternoon from a distressed man who said his passenger had been shot and the suspect was following them in his vehicle.
The incident started near Alta Mesa in south Fort Worth and ended in front of the Burleson Police Department. It was evident the passenger, Todd Neal Jr., was severely wounded. Police believe the shooting happened next to an area on Renfro and Wilshire.
“At about 1:54 p.m. we received a 911 call from a gentleman who said they were being chased and that somebody was shooting at them and they were coming to BPD,” Police Chief Billy Cordell said. “We had a lot of officers here and we all went out front looking for the car and looking for the suspect vehicle based on the description they gave us. About five minutes later a black car stopped in front of our building and a guy got out and started flagging us down. We went over there and he told us the passenger had been shot. We got him out of the car and called for medical and started doing CPR on him.”
Neal was transported by MedStar EMS to John Peter Smith Hospital where he later died from his injuries.
Keilon Breshawn Warren, 28, of Fort Worth, was arrested in the 100 block of NE Wilshire Blvd.
“While out there performing CPR we got a call about a suspicious vehicle in a neighborhood not far from BPD,” Cordell said. “It turned out to be the suspect in this shooting. We were able to catch up to him, interviewed him and subsequently arrested him.”
Burleson police and Fort Worth police are working collaboratively together to figure out a timeline for the incident. According to Cordell, Fort Worth police have video evidence showing where the incident started in southwest Fort Worth.
Warren was booked into the Johnson County Jail on a charge of murder, felony possession of a firearm and tampering with evidence. He is being held on a $300,000 bond.
