ARLINGTON, Texas — A Good Samaritan was shot dead in a Walgreens parking lot in Arlington Monday.

Cops say the incident started with an argument between 22-year-old Ricci Bradden and his wife, 22-year-old Quinisha Johnson, at the Walgreens at New York Avenue and Green Oaks.

“She’s an employee here at the Walgreens,” Lieutenant Chris Cook explained. “There was some type of confrontation in the parking lot with multiple shots being fired.”

Cops say Johnson was struck by the gunfire, but she’s expected to be okay with non-life threatening injuries.

Police believe the good Samaritan, 35-year-old T.J. Antell, went to his car to get a firearm to keep Bradden from driving away. He and Bradden then got into a shootout and Antell was shot dead.

Bradden eventually turned himself in to police.

“From what we’ve been told, a family member met with their suspect and took him to a Texas Highway Patrol DPS Office in Hill County, and that’s where he’s at right now,” Lt. Cook said.

The danger to the public is over but cops are still hoping to find out more about how this all started.
