Robert Purvis


Jurors see shocking video of teen being shot to death

Jurors in an Albany murder trial saw graphic video of the crime in court Tuesday.

Brian Beasley is accused of gunning down an Albany High School student, 19-year old Robert Purvis, at a Mock Road car wash in February 2011.

Prosecutors played surveillance video that shows Purvis walking up to a car as his girlfriend washes a car in the next bay.

Suddenly, Purvis falls backward after being shot at least twice in the chest.

Beasley sat quietly in court with his head down as the video was shown.

The shooter got out of his car, walked to Purvis's car,  then came back to the body and took Purvis's car keys, and drove away in the teen's car.

Jurors then heard from Purvis's girlfriend, Shanna Moore, who is seen on the surveillance video finding his body.

Katie Marie Fierro

 Katie and her murderer.

SAN ANTONIO - There are new details on a deadly shooting from Friday in Northeast Bexar County where a man and woman died and a baby was left in critical condition.

The gunman has been identified as 20-year-old Landon Joseph Keller. The victim has been identified as 20-year-old Katie Marie Fierro. As of Saturday night, Fierro's one-year-old son Kaden was at University Hospital on life support after being shot in the head.

A spokesperson for the Bexar County Sheriff's Office said they were not married and he was not the baby's father. But Keller lists Fierro as his wife on his Facebook page. Investigators are still trying to determine why Keller shot the mom and her baby when they arrived at their home on Oldham Friday, and then shot himself.

A passerby was also injured in the shooting. That person is expected to be Okay.
