Soldier fatally shoots ex-Marine, wounds wife in Arlington

Twenty-two-year-old Fort Hood, Texas-based soldier Ricci Bradden was charged with murder and aggravated assault on account of fatally shooting 35-year-old former Marine T. J. Antell and wounding his own wife, Quinisha Johnson, with a gunshot, at the Walgreens Pharmacy at 5600 New York Avenue in Arlington in Tarrant County on May 2, 2016.

According to the arrest warrant, Bradden sought out his wife, Johnson, to confront her at her place of work. He then shot his handgun twice after an argument, hitting Johnson once in the ankle. Bradden tried to flee the scene when an armed man, who was identified as Antell, told him to drop his weapon and stay where he was. Bradden was able to knock the gun out of Antell’s hand and shoot him.

He made a court appearance last Thursday, June 30 and asked for a bail reduction of his $515,000 bail.
