PARIS, TX - A man who shot his girlfriend's grandfather to death inside a Paris restaurant in front of several witnesses six months ago has pleaded guilty and been sentenced to 45 years in prison.

27-year-old Dustin Cooper of Center, Texas, pleaded guilty this week to the murder of 53-year-old Steven Gandy of Shelbyville inside a Paris KFC restaurant on May 15.

When police arrived, several employees ran from the restaurant and told them two men were arguing inside, one armed with a gun. After he shot Gandy, Cooper walked out the door and surrendered to police.
