LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - A Grand Jury has charged a Lubbock man with murder in the March fatal shooting of 28-year-old Joseph Burks.

Kennon Charles Shaw, 51, was indicted Tuesday on a charge of murder. He was arrested in Austin after deputies with the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office found Burks, a male employee of the Angelwitch Cabaret near Highway 87, around 1:50 a.m. on March 9, with a single gunshot wound.

Burks was taken to University Medical Center, where he later died. Police obtained surveillance video showing the suspect firing a gun at Burks, before leaving the club in a vehicle with another male. Police say the suspect in the video was matched to a booking photo of Shaw, and found the vehicle matching the video at Shaw’s address.

Shaw was arrested by U.S. Marshals in Austin six days after he was identified by LPD. He remains in the Lubbock County Detention Center on $500,000 bond.
