A 26-year-old ex-convict from Fort Worth has been arrested and faces a charge of murder in the May 3 shooting death of Sergio Gutierrez, according to police and county records.

Johnnie Johnson IV of Fort Worth was arrested Tuesday afternoon, according to police records. In 2010, Johnson was sentenced to eight years in prison for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, court records show.

The May 3 shooting happened in the 3800 block of Knox Street at about 1:40 p.m., according to police records.

Gutierrez, 27, died in a back yard shed from multiple gunshot wounds, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner.

Fort Worth police did not immediately say what led to the shooting or to Johnson's arrest.

Johnson was also adjudicated for burglary of a habitation when he was a juvenile, according to the indictment filing from his 2009 aggravated assault conviction.

Police investigate after a Hispanic man in his mid-20s is dead after being shot at a house in the 3800 block of Knox Street in the southeast Fort Worth.
