Killeen: ‘You know I’ll shoot him,’ murder suspect said, and then he did
Isaac Terrell Boston, 24, of Killeen, who was in custody Wednesday, fired a shotgun blast that killed another man as he demanded information about the whereabouts of his girlfriend, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.
Boston was booked into the Bell County Jail late Tuesday night.
He’s held in lieu of $1 million bond charged with murder.
He was arrested with assistance of the U.S. Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force at around noon Tuesday.
The charge stems from the Dec. 30 shooting death of Steven Guiles, 29, who was struck in the neck by a shotgun blast in an apartment at 802 North College Ave. as his girlfriend looked on.
Guiles was lying on the floor “with an obvious bleeding wound in the area of his neck” when officers arrived at around 7:35 a.m. on Dec. 30.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
His girlfriend told officers that a man she and Guiles knew as “Scooby” had come to their apartment carrying a shotgun and demanding information about the whereabouts of his girlfriend, the affidavit says.
The woman told officers that “Scooby,” who was later identified as Boston, thought that she and Guiles knew where his girlfriend was and “pointed the shotgun at Steven Guiles stated to (the woman), ‘You know I’ll shoot him. Where is she?’”
When the woman failed to answer, “Scooby” shot Guiles once and walked out, the affidavit says.
Investigators later determined that Boston went by the street name “Scooby” and the woman later identified Boston through a photo array, the affidavit says.
During an autopsy, a medical examiner found a part of a shotgun casing in the skin near the entrance wound in Guiles’ neck and a second part of the casing in his neck.
