Condemned prisoner Michael Dewayne Johnson insists he's not the gunman who killed a 27-year-old McLennan County man eleven years ago.

Instead, Johnson says a companion, David Vest, fired the fatal shot.

Vest blamed the shooting on Johnson, took a plea bargain and testified against his friend.

Johnson is set for lethal injection this evening in Huntsville.
