A former George Ranch High School student has been indicted on one felony count of murder in connection with the fatal shooting of a fellow student at a Richmond park last August.
Dylan Robert Rosilez, who was 16 at the time of the Aug. 22 shooting, could be sentenced to life in prison if convicted of the first-degree offense. Rosilez, who was a George Ranch High School student at the time of the killing, is accused of shooting Matthias Konrad, 16, who was also a student at GRHS, according to the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office.
Rosilez was arrested at his home later in the day after an anonymous tip was made to Crime Stoppers.
The shooting took place around 1:30 p.m. at Savannah Moss Park, located on Savannah Moss Drive in the Tara subdivision. Residents called 911 after hearing gunfire.
Konrad’s body was found in the park by friends. He had wounds to the face and torso.
A helicopter transported Konrad to a Houston hospital where he died.
Prosecutors believe Rosilez shot Konrad during a robbery at the park.
According to a newspaper, a girl informed deputies that Rosilez had called her seconds after shooting Konrad.
“He said to me that, ‘I was about to rob Matthias, but he started fighting me back,’” she said. “Then, he grabbed a gun and shot him in the face, in his chest and in his back.”
Sheriff’s Office Maj. Chad Norvell said Rosilez’s father agreed to allow deputies to search the house in the Tara subdivision but officers waited for a search warrant.
Norvell said investigators believe a small handgun was used in the shooting.
According to news reports, Rosilez was boasting about the killing on social media and included a video on Snapchat of a medical helicopter flying over the neighborhood. Although he was 16 at the time of the shooting, Rosilez will be tried as an adult. Bond was set at $75,000.
