I do not know about you, but I went my entire childhood without losing someone of a similar age that I knew. In Waco, Texas, it seems like more and more children are failing to make it to full grown adult status.

When a teenager dies due to an unforeseen circumstance like an automobile crash, or other accident it is already tragic enough. To discover a teen lost their life potentially at the hands of another teen is especially disheartening. That is what happened to Tercquan Johnson.

The Waco Police Department has reported that they found Johnson lying in the road dead from three gunshot wounds. Additional arrest papers claim he was killed after meeting Ruben Villa Lee Dominguez, 17 for an alleged illegal gun purchase.

According to this article with Fox44 News, the shooting of Johnson took place on the 1900 block of JJ Flewellen Road a little after 8:30 PM the evening of Tuesday, May 2nd. At the time of the shooting, this was declared the seventh murder in Waco for 2023, and became the sixth homicide investigation.

Thanks to a join effort with additional law enforcement, Dominguez was arrested in Freestone County by the U.S. Marshal's Lone Star Fugitive Task Force. According to this article at KWTX, the sport utility vehicle used for fleeing the shooting was recovered in Tarrant County by Fort Worth Police, and then returned to Waco for the investigation.

Dominguez now resides in the McLennan County Jail after being formally indicted for Johnson's murder.
