A 12-year-old Boy Arrested in Connection with Sonic Employee’s Murder
A shocking incident took place at a Sonic restaurant located in Keene, a town about 30 miles south of Fort Worth, Texas, where a 12-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with the murder of a Sonic employee.
The victim, identified as Matt Davis, 32, was fatally shot by the young boy after Davis asked someone in his vehicle to stop urinating on the property, as reported by Keene police.
The incident occurred on Saturday night when Angel Good Gomez, 20, pulled into the Sonic establishment and started urinating in the back parking lot.
Matt Davis went outside to confront Gomez, and it was then that a 12-year-old boy emerged from Gomez’s vehicle and shot Davis multiple times, using an AR-15 rifle, according to investigators.
Tragically, Davis succumbed to his injuries and passed away.
Both Gomez and the 12-year-old suspect have been charged in relation to the murder.
The community has been deeply affected by this heinous act, and people who did not even know the victim have come forward to pay their respects at a memorial set up at the scene.
Fresh flowers, a teddy bear, and other tokens of remembrance have been placed there in memory of Matt Davis.
Jen Baguette, a resident of Keene, expressed her disbelief and sympathy for the victim’s family.
She felt compelled to create a memorial, including a cross, to honor the memory of 32-year-old Matt Davis.
The shocking nature of the incident has shaken the community, with residents recalling the sound of gunshots and the immediate response from law enforcement.
The sequence of events unfolded when Gomez arrived at the Sonic with others in his vehicle from Fort Worth.
Following Gomez’s act of public urination, Davis confronted him, leading to a physical altercation.
During the fight, the 12-year-old suspect, a passenger in Gomez’s vehicle, seized the AR-15 rifle and fired multiple shots at Davis.
Gomez fled the scene with the weapon but was later apprehended by the authorities.
The 12-year-old suspect fled as well but was located at a residence in Rio Vista by Keene police and other agencies.
Gomez currently faces charges of tampering with evidence, but it is possible that these charges could be upgraded to murder.
The 12-year-old suspect has been placed in a juvenile facility.
The fact that such a young individual had access to a firearm and used it to commit a murder has raised concerns and shocked the community.
Matt Davis, who had recently moved to Keene and started working at Sonic just two weeks prior to the incident, leaves behind a ten-year-old son and a fiancee.
His tragic death has left the community mourning the loss of a hardworking and dedicated individual.
The investigation into this heartbreaking incident continues, as authorities work to gather more details and understand the circumstances surrounding the murder.
