from: The Associated Press



DALLAS (AP) — A Texas man has been convicted of capital murder in the fatal shooting of three teenagers by the man’s then 14-year-old son.

A Dallas jury on Friday found 34-year-old Richard Acosta guilty of capital murder in the 2021 shooting the day after Christmas. Prosecutors say Acosta drove his son to and from a convenience store in Garland, a Dallas suburb, where police say Abel Acosta shot four teenagers and killed three.

Police say Abel Acosta is still at large and is believed to be armed and dangerous. The jury dismissed Richard Acosta’s statement that he did not know his son had a gun or shot someone as he was driving away from the store. Richard Acosta faces life imprisonment.
