Homicide Suspect Arrested


On Tuesday, April 9, 2024, at 8:58 p.m., the Mansfield Police Department responded to a shooting on Monticello Drive. When officers arrived, they located a man with an apparent gunshot wound. The suspect had fled before the officers’ arrival at the scene. Officers performed life-saving measures until medics arrived. The man was transported to Mansfield Methodist Hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries.

The suspect was identified as Steven Shane Foster, 38 years of age. Officers and Detectives pursued leads to locate him. They found Foster at a residence in Midlothian and took him into custody without incident at around 11 p.m. This incident was domestic, which evolved between an ex-fiancé and an ex-boyfriend of the female resident. Foster is charged with Murder, Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, and Tampering with Evidence. The identity of the deceased will be released by the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office once the next of kin has been notified. This continues to be an active case.
