Texas death row inmate loses appeal in 2001 shooting at Mesquite gas station

HOUSTON – A Dallas man condemned for a slaying during a shooting spree he blamed on anger at people of Middle Eastern descent in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks has lost a federal court appeal of his capital murder conviction.

The ruling posted Tuesday by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals moves 41-year-old Mark Stroman a step closer to execution for the October 2001 fatal shooting of Vasudev Patel, who worked at a gas station in the Dallas suburb of Mesquite.

Patel was identified as one of three people shot by Stroman – two of them fatally. Stroman told his lawyers he was a white supremacist and testified the federal government hadn't done its job after the terrorist attacks so he was going to do it for them.
