Arrests made in deadly carjacking in SW Houston

Two suspects have been arrested after a driver was gunned down Saturday morning in southwest Houston.

Investigators tell Eyewitness News that the victim is 27-year-old Philip Panzica. He made headlines after he was arrested for having sex on a Las Vegas Ferris wheel in February. At the time, Panzica told authorities he had sex with a woman he met down the Las Vegas strip after he got into an argument with his then-girlfriend.

Houston police say Bryant Watts and Arron Jones have been arrested in connection with the carjacking that involved Panzica and his fiance. Watts and Jones have been charged with capital murder.

The carjacking happened around 5:15am Saturday in the 9200 block of Richmond Avenue at Ocee Street.

Four people were inside a black Kia after leaving an adult entertainment club where Panzica's fiance is a dancer. Police say the fiance got into the passenger seat of the vehicle. Jones and Watts sat in the rear passenger seats.

According to HPD, Panzica's fiance heard Watts say, "You need to come clean." She says Watts also pointed a handgun before shooting Panzica several times.

Police say the men then pulled Panzica out of the car and left his body in the road.

The woman was told to get out of the car, and both men took off in the Kia.

When Watts was taken into custody in Menard County, he admitted he was responsible for the shooting and robbery. Both suspects were found with a 'large amount' of cash in their possession.
