TEXAS CITY — Prosecutors in a capital murder trial Wednesday proposed a motive in a bar shooting that left two patrons dead and a third injured.

Testimony in the trial of Robert Hernandez Ramos, 62, began Wednesday. He’s accused of the Dec. 4, 2010, execution-style slaying of Robert Sias Cantu, 67, at Little Doggie bar, 527 Texas Ave., in Texas City.

The bullet that struck Ramos also struck Evelyn Busby in the shoulder as she stood at the bar’s jukebox, testimony revealed.

Ramos also was accused of fatally shooting patron Roger Robinson, a former Houston police officer, who ran after the shooter as he left the bar through a side door.

Prosecutor Bill Reed told the jury of six men and six women that Ramos shot Cantu once in the head, killing him almost instantly.
