Two Arrested for Capital Murder in Connection with Fatal Shooting Outside Frisco Walmart

Frisco, Texas – Frisco police have made significant progress in the investigation of a shooting incident outside a Walmart last year. Two individuals have been arrested and charged with capital murder in connection with the tragic event that led to the death of one man and the injury of another.

Last fall, a disturbing incident unfolded outside the Walmart store on Preston Road and Hickory Street in Frisco, Texas. Army veteran Zachary Lowe was leaving his job when he was confronted by a man who demanded money at gunpoint. Despite complying with the demands, Lowe was shot twice in the back during the encounter. Additionally, Dung Doan, a 62-year-old father of two who had recently relocated to North Texas from Vietnam, was also shot multiple times while walking home from the same store.

Fortunately, Lowe survived the traumatic incident after undergoing surgery, but Doan tragically passed away as a result of his injuries. Following an extensive investigation aided by public cooperation, Frisco police were able to identify the suspects responsible for the fatal shooting. Jhirrell Harris, 42, and Stephanie Gayden, 37, both from Monroe, Louisiana, have been charged in connection with the crime.

Harris, who was already in custody in Louisiana on an unrelated charge, is facing charges of capital murder, aggravated robbery, and aggravated assault. Detectives traveled to Monroe to serve him with the necessary legal documents, paving the way for his extradition to Collin County, Texas. Gayden, on the other hand, has also been charged with capital murder and is currently being held in the Collin County Jail on a $1 million bond.

Assistant Chief Darren Stevens of the Frisco Police Department commended the diligent work of the detectives in apprehending the suspects, emphasizing the crucial role of public cooperation in solving such cases. Stevens expressed gratitude for the anonymous tip received earlier in the year, which significantly aided in expediting the identification of the individuals involved in the heinous act of violence.

As the legal proceedings unfold, the fate of Harris and Gayden remains uncertain. Capital murder convictions in Texas carry severe penalties, including life imprisonment without parole or the possibility of facing the death penalty. The community awaits further developments in the case as justice is sought for the victims and their families impacted by this senseless act.
