State of Texas scheduled to execute Anthony Shore

On Wednesday, October 18, 2017, the State of Texas is scheduled to execute Anthony Shore for multiple murders in Harris County in the 1980s and 1990s. Sentenced in November 2004, Shore is the last white defendant to receive a death sentence in Harris County.

If it proceeds, his execution would be the first out of Harris County this year. Harris County accounts for 127 executions since 1982, more than any state except Texas.
