Tragic news from San Marcos, Texas this holiday week. Khambrail Winters, 20 years old, died of a gunshot wound to the chest late Tuesday night.
Police say that witnesses described it as a “drug deal gone bad.” Winters and two friends, Enalisa Blackman and Michael Ifeanacho, entered an apartment complex in San Marcos to purchases marijuana. At some point inside an apartment, Winters was shot and died on the scene. Police arrested both of the people identified as Winter’s “friends,” and charged them with capital murder. They are also looking for two other suspects who were on the scene, one or both of which might be the shooter. The police released this statement in asking for help to find two people of interest:
The Alief Taylor football team tweeted out this message:
