FORT WORTH, TX — Fort Worth police say a man fatally shot his ex-wife in front of their 9-year-old son before killing himself.

On Sunday morning, 38-year-old Brian Kesner called 911 to say he had just shot his ex-wife, 28-year-old Krista Copeland, in the Southwest Regional Branch Library parking lot. He then fatally shot himself in the head.

Copeland was meeting Kesner at the library so he could visit with his 9-year-old son. A witness stated the two started arguing before Kesner shot Copeland in the head as she sat in the driver’s seat of her car.

Their 9-year-old was not in his mother’s car when she was shot, but had gotten out of his father’s trucks moments before the shooting. Kesner then got back into his truck and drove a short distance away before calling 911 and then killing himself.

Copeland was rushed to John Peter Smith Hospital where she died from gunshot wounds to her head. Kesner was pronounced dead in the library’s parking lot.

    How nice, when you bring your gun along, to go meet with your ex-wife for your child visitation. At least he didn’t kill the kid too. Hopefully kiddo is able to heal after the years of therapy it’s going to take..

  • Aerysta

    Omgggggggg, you are torturing me with the kid stories! I think we need more pit bull mauling stories instead.

  • Matt

    Pit bull mauling stories are usually about pit bulls mauling children and babies to death though. I guess that would be better?

  • Aerysta

    Ok, pit bull stories about mauling smart asses on the internet. Better?

  • Sejanus

    Guy should have just offed himself.
    The wife is not suffering and he just fucked up his kid.

    This happened to a friend of mine as well. He was with his girlfriend when they went to drop her son off for a visit with her ex. Ex-hubby started screaming at her, my friend got between them. Ex-hubby pulls out an automatic and unloaded a clip in to my friend. Yeah, way to go buddy. You’re now spending the rest of your life in prison and you’re child is scared for life. Bring a gun to a child pickup should be a criminal offense.

  • My prayers to her children and her family. My heart goes out to her son who had to witness this horrible thing this Monster did to his Mom. Poor child will need so much therapy. I hope this killer’s soul goes to hell.

  • Matt

    Yeah, that could work. But, those smart asses on the internet must be children or babies because they’re the only ones being mauled to death by pit bulls.

  • What a piece of shit

  • Phedo Pile

    He only killed the whore, not the kid. Stop complaining.

  • Taster’sChoice

    Yes, but remember – it’s always better to be a smartass than a dumbass.

  • Man man man, why would you traumatize your kid like that????? It would have been so much easier to just walk away.

  • esmerald 2006

    What a typical sore looser. He didn’t like loosing, good thing he offed himself but he started in the wrong order, like a looser.

  • dumwise

    He should have just waited until she is having a party then wastes all the guests. Oh shit! that was yesterday

  • dumwise

    Stop it.. I have a buddy whose last name Dumass. He likes to pronounce it Doomass

  • Ann Roh

    I could eat a bowl of alphabet soup and shit out a smarter statement than whatever you just said.


    This world is so fucked. It just isn’t even funny anymore.

  • my grandfather did this to my grandmother, my mom was 7, saw it all…it damages you. Rot in hell

  • Happy Entrails

    Right. He should have been tighter.

  • Phedo Pile

    Oh boohoo. Are you mad?

  • Ann Roh

    Just laughing at a broflake.

  • NoBS NoSpam

    I’ve met these control freaks who have mastered manipulation through piss poor up raising.

    It is so much easier to tear down a child than to build them up. It’s a shame the sperm donor found such a gullible receptacle. Child mothers with zero survival instincts due to social engineering of the mythical safe space.
    They not only passed on weak genes but the kid has been taught problem solving skills from generations of entitlement fuckery.

  • GGMon

    Right? Clearly he didn’t care about his son

  • Poor kid ,gonna need alot of therapy after that

  • Diva of Destruction

    Ah nothing like making memories.

  • PurpleAnn

    Did anyone else just hear Tiffany sing those words in their head? (That’s what they say when we’re together……)

  • PurpleAnn

    I’m surprised he doesn’t pronounce as the French do: doo-mah.

  • PurpleAnn

    Yes, but then he wouldn’t have “won”. (dripping with sarcasm)

  • PurpleAnn

    I love you so much right now.

  • Happy Entrails

    Thank you. I get snarky when someone sodomizes one of my pet peeves.

  • dumwise

    Took me a while to get what you were saying.
    Why isn’t that song called “Think we’re alone now”? and why is it sung by Tommy James and the shondells. Who the hell is Tiffany?

  • PurpleAnn

    Tiffany was a teen-age pop singer who re-made the song in 1986. The music video was filmed in a mall. Yes, you are right to ask “Who the hell is Tiffany?” She probably cleans the food court tables at that same mall today.
    You can hear the words in Tommy’s voice if you prefer.

  • dumwise

    Gee whiz. I didn’t mean for you to be so hard on poor ol’ Tiff.

  • PurpleAnn


  • dilldoeh

    That kid is gonna have to live with what he made his dad do for the rest of his life…thats punishment enough in my book.
