On Sunday evening, police responded to live music venue Ventura following a shooting which left two dead and five injured.

According to the Twitter account for the San Antonio Police Department, the suspect in question has been identified as 19-year-old Kiernan Christopher Williams, a rapper going by the name of 32BABY K9 who was set to perform that night, according to a KENS 5 report.

The report identified the victims as Robert Jay Martinez III, 20, and Alejandro Robles, 25. Robles leaves behind a five-year-old son.

Williams will be charged with capital murder and may face additional charges, according to SAPD.
