Witness testifies she saw deadly shooting

Published November 9, 2011 TEXAS CITY — A witness to a deadly shooting last year testified Tuesday she saw a teenager shoot a man in the head and run from the scene.

The eyewitness took the stand in the first day of testimony in the murder trial of Santos Rene Almanzar IV, 17, who was accused of fatally shooting Jack Briscoe III once in the head.

Briscoe was shot Jan. 18, 2010, at Palmer House Apartments, 2405 Palmer Highway, in Texas City.

Almanzar was certified to stand trial as an adult last year.

Dashaela Davis, 16, testified she was visiting her aunt at the complex and was sitting outside in a chair next to the self-service, clothes-washing room when three people came down a nearby staircase.
