HURST -- Police have arrested a former employee and were searching Saturday for several other suspects in connection with the execution-style slaying earlier this week of a Hurst miniature golf course manager.

David Storey, 22, has been charged with capital murder in the killing of Jonas Cherry, the assistant manager who police said was gunned down execution style Monday at the Putt-Putt Golf & Games Center, located in the 600 block of Northeast Loop 820.

Police said Storey was driving the 2002 Ford Explorer that was captured on surveillance video leaving the center around the time of the killing. At least four others were being sought in connection wit

Police said Cherry, 28, was an assistant manager at the facility and had worked there for 12 years.

He died at the center after he was shot in the back of the head shortly before the center opened at 10 a.m. Cherry's body was found by another employee who was arriving for work.

"Execution is the right word," said Assistant Police Chief Richard Winstanley. "He was cooperative (and) there wasn't a lot of money involved in this."

According to the arrest warrant, Storey was paid $150 for his part in the crime. Investigators received a tip Thursday about the whereabouts of the sport utility vehicle, which was found at Storey's east Fort Worth home.

He was taken into custody shortly after 10 p.m. Friday night.

According to police documents, the group pretended to have engine trouble in order to gain access to the miniature golf course. Po
lice said the suspects got away with less than $1,000 during the incident.

Police said they know the identity of two other suspects and a third was already in police custody. That suspect was being questioned about his alleged role in the slaying.

Relatives of Cherry said they were pleased to learn of the arrest.

"I probably clapped, screamed and hollered because I'm really glad these guys aren't going to get away with what they did to my nephew," said Craig Cherry, the victim's uncle.

It's been three days since an employee found Jonas Cherry's body inside the main building at a miniature golf course in Hurst. His father says his son went to work early that morning and he says that was typical of who he was.

Jonas had devoted more than a decade of his life to Putt Putt Golf and Games.

"He went to work there when he was 16. He probably hadn't taken two sick days since
then,' said Cherry's father, Glenn.

Jonas was about to celebrate his first wedding anniversary and his father says the 28-year-old had new goals in mind.

"Well, he was fixin' to start having kids. He was excited about that," Glenn said.

The newlywed was planning to open his own bowling alley and had recently bought into a bar that was set to open the day of his funeral.

Glenn says his son was looking toward the future. "He's always wanted to be in business for himself, didn't want to work for nobody and uh, so this was gonna kinda be his first start."

Someone extinguished those dreams with gunfire Monday morning. Police are calling it a robbery. Jonas' father calls it senseless. "It's just hard to grasp, someone shooting your son. Just for no reason," he said.

Happens all the time Chief Wiggum, isn't that right?

Jonas' father calls it senseless. "It's just hard to grasp, someone shooting your son. Just for no reason," he said.

That's because you are attempting to anthropomorphise a nigger.

HURST -- Police in Hurst said Tuesday that they have charged a second man in the execution-style slaying last week of a miniature golf employee.

Mark Dewayne Porter, 20, is facing a capital murder charge in the death of Jonas Cherry, who was gunned down Oct. 16 at the Putt-Putt Golf & Games Center, located in the 600 block of Northeast Loop 820.

Porter has been held in the Hurst jail since last week on unrelated warrants, but police have linked him to the killing of Cherry, authorities said. His bond was raised to $500,000 after the new charges were filed.

Paul David Storey, 22, of Fort
Worth was taken into custody last week. He has been charged with capital murder and remained behind bars at the Hurst jail Tuesday in lieu of a $500,000 bond.

Cherry, 28, was an assistant manager at the miniature golf center and had worked there for 12 years.

He died at the center after he was shot in the back of the head shortly before the center opened at 10 a.m. Cherry's body was found by another employee who was arriving for work.

Police have said that Storey had worked at the Putt-Putt center before the slaying occurred. According to the arrest affidavit, Storey was paid $150 for his part in the crime.

Police were able to crack the case partly because of a red sport utility vehicle that was captured on surveillance camera at the center.

Investigators received a tip about the whereabouts of the Ford Explorer SUV, which was parked at Storey's home. He was taken into custody a few hours after police found the SUV.

HURST -- Police said Monday that they are not looking for other suspects in the robbery and killing of a miniature golf course assistant manager.

One of the two men already in custody had claimed that he was not the shooter and that a total of four men were involved, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

But police said they don't believe Paul David Storey, 22.

"At this point, we're not looking for anyone else," police spokesman Sgt. Craig Teague said.
