Gary David Green Case

A man was given the death penalty Wednesday for fatally shooting a deputy in 2013.

A Nueces County jury convicted Gary David Green on June 18 of capital murder in connection with the death of Upton County deputy Billy “Bubba” Kennedy.

The same jury handed down the death sentence Wednesday afternoon.

In Texas, capital murder is punishable by either life in prison without parole or the death penalty.

The trial was moved from West Texas because of a change of venue.

The Associate Press reported that Green was arrested in October 2013 following a shootout at a McCamey convenience store. His card was declined at the store and he demanded free gas, the Odessa American reported.

The man was approached by Kennedy and another deputy, who ran a check on the vehicle’s license plate and discovered it was stolen.

Kennedy went to the vehicle’s side door and unfastened his gun from its holster, according to the newspaper. Green opened his door and fired, it states. Both officers reportedly returned fire.

The jury found that Green would be a continuing threat to society and determined there were no “mitigating circumstances,” such as Green’s character and background, that warranted life in prison over the death penalty, court records show.
