Guilty Plea In Murder At Pizza Hut

A Duplin County member of "The Bloods" will spend the rest of his life in prison after admitting to killing a Pizza Hut employee two years ago.

Mario Brown pled guilty this morning in Kenansville to first degree murder, discharging a weapon into occupied property and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

District Attorney Ernie Lee says back on June 9, 2009 Antonio Fenner was working inside the Wallace Pizza Hut when Brown pulled up in a car and fired multiple time into the restaurant through the window. Police say six shots were fired, two of those hitting the victim.

A state trooper stopped the fleeing vehicle with four people inside. Wallace police were able to identify the gunman thanks to surveillance video at the restaurant. Lee says during a police interview, Brown said he was a member of "The Bloods" gang.

it is not believed the victim had anything to do with gangs.

The D.A. says the plea deal was offered to Brown after consulting with Fenner's family.

    Well, Mario .......... How does it feel to be a part of a "family" like THE BLOODS!! Are they going to be there to take care of your family? Will they protect your loved ones from idiots like you?? Do you think your name will impress future "bloodies" by setting such a fine moral, compassionate and intelligent example? I THINK NOT!!! Maybe your new family in prison will take "care" of you like you so deserve. What a waste!!

    My great, great, great Grandfather had a slave...this is somehow my fault. I am in the process of signing over my property to this well deserving citizen.

    This man needs to be executed, just as he admittedly executed an innocent person. There is no excuse for what he has done. No excuse.

    This mother does not believe in the death penalty. It will not bring her son back. Rather than go through 20 years of waiting for someone to die, endless appeals, media circus, etc. She wanted closure...plain and simple. The "gang related" is misleading and a classic case of salacious journalism.

    As I was very involved in this crime and it posed a serious impact directly on my life, I'm glad to see this animal will NOT be back on the street like so many others are.....however, I wonder if justice was really served by allowing him to breath when Mr. Fenner can no longer do that!!!! Horrific scene and crime that will never leave my mind, but at least there is a sense of closure!!
