Henry Anthony McKinney

A Fort Worth man has been identified as a suspect in the Nov. 6 triple shooting in Burleson.

Henry Anthony McKinney, 30, was arrested Tuesday by a team of law enforcement agents from Johnson and Tarrant Counties and the Texas Rangers. He is also linked to three other shootings in Fort Worth.

Just before 6 a.m. Nov. 5, the Fort Worth Police Department responded to a call in the 2500 block of Bomar Avenue, where they located an unconscious man who was the victim of a gunshot wound.

The victim, identified as Allen Foster, was transported to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth where he later died from his injuries.

According to a press release from the Burleson Police Department, it was discovered that a silver Chevy Malibu was stolen from Foster and used in connection to the triple shooting at a home on Timber Ridge Drive in Burleson.

Officers with the Burleson Police Department responded to that incident at 2:12 a.m Nov. 6 and found three shooting victims who were identified as 21-, 27- and 28-year-old males.

Preliminary reports indicated the shooter was familiar with at least one person who was in the home at the time of the shooting.

BPD detectives developed a viable suspect lead during their investigation, which led them to McKinney.

BPD, FWPD, the Johnson County Stop The Offender Program Task Force, Johnson County Sheriff’s Office and the Texas Rangers worked together to investigate each crime and apprehended McKinney on Tuesday during a traffic stop.

McKinney was arrested for three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and was booked into the Tarrant County Jail

Additional charges, to include capital murder, are forthcoming.
