A former high school football standout in the Houston area was tragically shot and killed and it was allegedly done so by his former Ridge Point High School teammate.
According to Missouri City police, Terry Petry was found with a gunshot wound to his chest on Friday. He was transported to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
His former teammate, Alex Tristen Francis, has been charged with his murder.
“What? Come on, you got the wrong man,” Kathy Davis, the victim’s mother said. “I said, ‘That’s his best friend!’ I couldn’t believe it.”
The two played football at Ridge Point High School and stayed close friends after, according to Davis.
Petry was a star player for Ridge Point and earned first-team all-district honors and was named the district’s MVP. He graduated in 2017.
A judge set his bond at $350,000.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
