DALLAS (KRLD) - A man in the Tarrant County Jail is facing charges in a Burleson shooting case and is expected to be charged in a Fort Worth murder. Police departments in both those cities worked with the Texas Rangers to arrest 30-year-old Henry Anthony McKinney.

Investigators say he's linked to a series of crimes, including a murder in Fort Worth on November 5th. Someone shot and killed 58-year-old Allen Foster outside a home on Bomar Avenue. Investigators determined Foster's car had also been stolen. The vehicle was connected to another shooting in Burleson that happened on November 6th.

"We were dispatched on a 9-1-1 call to what the caller described as a triple shooting. Once we arrived we found three people had been shot...three males in their 20's," said Burleson Police Chief Billy Cordell. "We did locate a female inside the home...and we understand that there was a second female inside the home that left with the shooter. We believe that this was a targeted event and it wasn't a randomly selected home."

His officers got information about a stolen vehicle used in that case. "The stolen vehicle was taken in a homicide in Fort Worth and used in some additional offenses...robberies and shootings," Chief Cordell said. They contacted Fort Worth Police and worked with their detectives on the investigation.

Officers arrested Henry Anthony McKinney during a traffic stop on November 12th. He's being held in the Tarrant County jail on three counts of Attempted Capital Murder, Aggravated Robbery with a Deadly Weapon, and Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.  Police also expect him to be charged with Capital Murder in the Fort Worth case.
