Authorities say a Fort Hood soldier has confessed to gunning down a former Marine in Arlington Monday morning.
The shooting took place outside a Walgreen's drug store in Arlington around 11:50 AM. According to police, Bradden drove to the location from Fort Hood to confront his wife, 22-year-old Quinisha Shermon Johnson - a Walgreen's employee.
Bradden and Johnson got into an argument, and Bradden shot Johnson in the ankle.
35-year-old Anthony Antell Jr., a former Marine, witnessed the shooting and went to his vehicle to get his gun. He then confronted and tried to detain Bradden, who was getting into a truck. Bradden reportedly slapped the gun from Antell's hands, then shot him and fled the scene.
Antell's wife was in their vehicle and witnessed her husband's murder. According to NBC 5 News, Antell and his wife have three children.
Antell owned a CrossFit gym in Arlington. Mourners gathered there Monday evening to honor the man's sacrifice.
