A Missouri City man has been convicted in a 2019 shooting at a club in southwest Houston that injured two people, the Harris County District Attorney’s Office announced Saturday.

Landon Johnson, 40, was sentenced to 45 years by a Harris County jury for shooting two nightclub security guards with an assault rifle while out on bail for a separate shooting in Fort Bend County, according to the release.

Johnson allegedly punched a man outside the Gold Diggers Cabaret in the 11,300 block of South Main on February 1, 2019, before being told to leave by guards, according to court records.

When Johnson returned 20 minutes later, he allegedly shot one guard five times and the other guard once, court records added.

The jury sentenced Johnson to 45 years in prison after two days of hearing evidence from other pending cases in Brazoria and Fort Bend counties.

Assistant District Attorney Traci Gibson said Johnson deserves at least 45 years.

“He’s spent the last two decades committing acts of violence,” Gibson said. “Recidivists have begun to re-offend in Harris County and this verdict has made it clear that it will not be tolerated.”
