Gabe Cooley Death – Dead: Calallen football are mourning the death of one of their player, Gabe Cooley who was fatally stabbed Sunday after an incident at the Walmart on U.S. Highway 77.
Corpus Christi police officers responded to a stabbing after two people got into a disturbance, Senior Officer Travis Pace told the Caller-Times.
After the fatal stabbing, Gabe Cooley was rushed to the hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries and the suspect was taken into custody without incident.
A Calallen man faces murder charges this evening after police say he stabbed another man to death today inside the Wal-Mart in Calallen.
Billy Ferguson III is being held at the Nueces County Jail after police arrested him Sunday afternoon. Ferguson is being held for fatally stabbing Gabe Cooley inside the Wal-Mart in Calallen.
It is unclear whether Cooley and Ferguson knew each other before the fatal stabbing. Both Gabe Cooley and Billy Ferguson played football for the Calallen Wildcat High School team.
Veteran Calallen football coach Phil Danaher described Cooley as one a special player.
“He was one of the nicest, polite kids,” Danaher said. “He got along with everybody. And he was a lot of fun.” he said.
Danaher remembered playfully testing Cooley at practices during his time with the Wildcats.
“When he was working on his kicking, I would go up and challenge him,” Danaher said. “And put pressure on him. ‘You’re kicking for a state championship and there are five seconds to go.’ And he would miss it every now and then and I would give him a hard time.
Gabe Cooley is a senior kicker on Calallen’s football roster on MaxPreps and was named the boys soccer district Newcomer of the Year for District 29-5A in April.
