A man who shot and killed a good Samaritan in November of 2010 has plead guilty to capital murder, according to officials. Anthony Ferrell, 40, shot and killed 24-year-old Samuel Irick after Irick tried to stop Ferrell from stealing a woman’s purse.
The incident happened at a Chevron gas station in the 4600 block of Beechnut near Meyerland.
The woman was not injured in the incident. The entire crime was caught on tape and Ferrell was arrested at a nightclub not long after. Anthony had a lengthy crime record, including charges of burglary and aggravated robbery, dating back to the 1980s.
Ferrell will be sentenced early next year, officials said.
