According to arrest papers, Daniel Jeremy Torres, Jr. lives across the street from the spot where he shot 28-year-old Jesse Lee Richards just days before Christmas.

At the time, police said Richards had just gotten off work at the Texas Road House off Southeast Military Drive and was waiting at a bus stop. He served in Iraq and had been working at the restaurant for three days.

"He had a box of food in his hand and he was headed home. That's what makes this all the more disturbing that someone could just be sitting there waiting for the bus, and have somebody approach and shoot them," said Jesse Salame with the San Antonio Police Department.
