SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — Officers responded to what they thought was an auto versus pedestrian crash Monday night only to find a man shot in the chest and run over by his own car.
San Marcos police responded to the Laundry Basket at 1525 Aquarena Springs Dr. at 11:50 p.m. Ryan Andrew Kincaid, 28, of New Braunfels, was found with a gunshot wound to his chest and trauma suggesting he had been hit by a car.
Officers and EMS crews attempted CPR but were unable to revive Kincaid. Witnesses told authorities a suspect shot Kincaid, took his car and ran him over as they left the parking lot.
Tuesday, police went back to the area to talk to employees of several businesses in a nearby shopping center and to ask for any surveillance footage. A couple of the people police talked to told KXAN the car involved in the crime ended up in the parking lot of that shopping center across the street.
Fresh orange paint could be seen on the pavement, and the employees said police marked out where the car stopped. It’s not clear how the car ended up there — whether it was involved in another crash after driving off from the laundromat or if the driver ran off.
Authorities have two people in custody, neither of whom are San Marcos residents. A city spokesman said Tuesday afternoon they are considered persons of interest and are being questioned, but could not say whether they knew Kincaid.
