Former Texas A&M wide receiver Thomas Johnson randomly attacked a jogger early Monday morning and murdered the man with a machete, Dallas police said Tuesday.
According to FOX 4 News in Dallas, police say Johnson used the weapon to kill the jogger at around 8 a.m. Monday and later admitted to the crime, calling police from a nearby location to confess.
A cyclist witnessed the attack.
“You could tell it was a machete, coming down on what I wasn’t sure at first but when I got closer I could tell it was a body,” the witness, who identified himself as Brandon, told FOX 4. “And he was repeatedly hitting it in the back of the neck.”
Dallas Police Department Deputy Chief Rob Sherwin said that Johnson was “angry about his situation” and described the murder as “quite shocking.”
