Two dead in Texas club shooting, suspect arrested

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Police have arrested a 19-year-old man in a shooting that left two men dead and at least five people injured at a concert in San Antonio, Texas.

Kieran Christopher Williams will be charged with capital murder for allegedly opening fire during an argument last Sunday at a bar on the Museum Reach portion of the San Antonio River Walk, police said.

Officers were called around 8pm last Sunday to the Ventura, where they found several people injured and the suspected gunman gone, after what a witness described as a chaotic rush to escape the gunfire.

The Medical Examiner Officer identified the men killed as Robert Martinez, 21, and Alejandro Robles, 25.

A 46-year-old woman and four male teens between the ages of 16 and 19 were hurt but are expected to survive their injuries.

An attorney for Williams could not be immediately reached.

In Texas, an argument broke out inside the club and one person pulled out a gun and started shooting, San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said. One victim died at the scene, and another six were transported to a hospital, where one was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.
