HOUSTON — A man caught on video having sex on a Las Vegas Ferris wheel in February has been killed in a carjacking.

Police say Phil Panzica, 27, and his fiancee had just left a strip club in Houston around 5 a.m. Saturday when Panzica was killed inside her vehicle.

He was shot multiple times and killed by one of two suspects who were in the back seat of his fiancee’s vehicle.

Panzica’s fiancee was then told to get out of the car and the suspects took off.

The two suspects, Bryant Watts and Arron Jones, were later caught and arrested. They have been charged with capital murder.

Panzica made headlines in February when he was arrested for having sex with a woman on a Ferris wheel in Las Vegas — the same day he planned to marry another woman. It isn’t clear if the fiancee who was in the vehicle with him when he was killed was the same woman.

A GoFundMe page has been made in his honor.
