A man admitted to shooting and killing an off-duty police officer and his friend during a robbery at a restaurant in Houston in 2021.

Frederick Jackson admitted to committing two murders and agreed to a 60-year prison sentence as part of a deal made with the Harris County District Attorney.

Jackson, who is 22 years old and is from San Antonio, admitted to killing New Orleans police Detective Everett Briscoe, who was 41 years old, and Dyrin “DJ” Riculfy, who was 43 years old.

Briscoe and Riculfy were eating outside at a restaurant on Aug 21, 2021 when two men in hoodies came up to them, tried to steal from them, and then shot them, according to the police. The suspects ran away but were caught by the police later.

Briscoe, who had worked for the New Orleans police for 13 years, was declared dead at the place where the incident happened. Riculfy passed away in a Houston hospital 10 days after.

Briscoe and Riculfy were part of a group called the Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club. They were with their friends from the club when they got shot.

Jackson admitted to his actions in a Houston court on Tuesday. He was supposed to go to trial this week.

Ogg said that the police officer from a big city was taking a break and hanging out with friends on vacation. “It’s really sad, and it shows that anyone can be a victim of a violent crime, no matter where they are. ”

Jackson has to stay in prison for at least 30 years before he can ask to be released. He will be officially punished on Monday.

Two more men, Anthony Rayshard Jenkins, 24, and Khalil Nelson, 21, are still going to be tried for the shooting. Both are still in prison.
