KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) Isaac Terrell Boston, 24, of Killeen, who, according to an arrest affidavit, fired a shotgun blast that killed another man as he demanded information about the whereabouts of his girlfriend, has been indicted for murder

He remains in the Bell County Jail in lieu of $1 million.

The indictment stems from the Dec. 30, 2019 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.
