We’ve got new video in the case against three Augusta men charged with murder in the beating death of a Texas gym security guard.

It may explain why he kicked them out, and why they were mad.

This comes from a 55-minute video by Darius Williams, a talented basketball player who is now in a Texas jail. It shows a one-on-one pickup game with a member of the Fitness Connection while the three men were there. When money exchange hands at the end, the guard appear to request his cut. Moments later, he kicks the three men out and a fight leads to his death.

As we told you earlier, three Augusta men are facing murder charges for allegedly beating a security guard to death a week ago at a Texas gym.

Xzaviour Williams, 20, Darius Williams, 26, and Cameron Walton, 26, are accused of killing Patrick Prejean, a beating that was captured on video and went viral on TikTok.

Two of the suspects – Walton and Xzaviour Williams – had returned to Augusta and were captured here Friday. Darius Williams was captured in Dallas, and his mugshot was not available.

The incident happened Jan. 22 at the Fitness Connection in Mesquite. Witnesses said a security guard had been assaulted by several men and was lying on the ground.

Mesquite officers immediately began administering CPR until MFD Paramedics arrived on the scene. Prejean was transported to a local hospital, where he was later pronounced deceased.

An investigation led to the identification of the suspects as three Augusta men.

In Richmond County, Cameron Walton has a record of arrests for marijuana, DUI, and driving while license suspended. Xzaviour Williams had only speeding tickets in Richmond County, while Darius Williams had previous arrests for shoplifting, domestic violence, simple battery, reckless driving, no helmet and no driver’s license.
