Gunman sentenced to 45 years for shooting two security guards in 2019 while free

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – A Missouri City man was sentenced to 45 years in prison after shooting two security guards while on bail in 2019, Harris County Attorney Kim Ogg has announced on Saturday.

Landon Kenrie “Ken” Johnson shot one security guard once and the other five times in 20 minutes after being forced to leave after a fight in a club in southwest Houston.

“He started a fight at a club, was sent away and then returned with an AR-15 rifle to shoot the security officers who kicked him away,” Ogg said. “We are extremely fortunate that no one was killed.”

Johnson was recently freed by Fort Bend in a separate shooting as the offense occurred.

A Harris County grand jury convicted Johnson on Friday after two days of hearing evidence of his previous bad deeds. Johnson was convicted for two robberies. and armed robbery, two counts of assaulting a family member and causing injury to a child. He also has pending cases in both Brazoria and Fort Bend counties.

Assistant District Attorney Traci Gibson, who prosecuted the case with ADA George Lindsey, said he deserves at least 45 years.

“He’s spent the past two decades committing acts of violence,” Gibson said. “Habitual offenders have re-offended in Harris County and this sentence has made it clear that this will not be tolerated.”

The incident was investigated by the Houston Police Department.
