Fort Worth teen sentenced to 15 years in fatal shooting

Alex Evans, who was 17 when he shot Jerry Moseley last year, also pleaded guilty to unrelated burglary counts, Tarrant County prosecutors said Monday.

A teenager who pleaded guilty to a murder charge in the shooting of a 24-year-old man last year has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Alex Evans, 18, was sentenced Thursday for the fatal shooting of Jerry Moseley on May 31, 2013, at an apartment complex off Sycamore School Road.

Moseley and Evans got into a fight at the complex in the 7400 block of Candle Ridge Circle, said Tiffany Burks, a Tarrant County prosecutor.

Evans also pleaded guilty to three counts of burglary of a habitation and was sentenced to five years on each count, Burks said. The burglaries all occurred in Evans’ neighborhood in April and May of 2013, Burks said.

The burglaries and Moseley’s killing were unrelated, she said.

The sentences will run concurrently, Burks said. Evans must serve half of his sentence before he is eligible for parole, she said.
