SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — Three people, one of whom is a juvenile, have been arrested in connection with the shooting death of a man at a San Marcos laundromat.
San Marcos police say 19-year-old Kyle Sample and a 14-year-old boy were arrested on Tuesday and charged with capital murder in the death of Ryan Kincaid, 28, of New Braunfels.
Investigators say Kincaid met the two teenagers for a drug deal in the parking lot of the Laundry Basket on Aquarena Springs Drive just before midnight on Monday. According to an arrest affidavit, the suspects were there to rob Kincaid who was planning to sell marijuana to them.
As the juvenile was sitting in a car with Kincaid for the staged drug deal, Sample came up to the car, knocked on the window and demanded the money and drugs, the affidavit continued. When Kincaid failed to cooperate, police say Sample shot him. As the suspects were trying to get away, the juvenile jumped into Kincaid’s car and allegedly ran him over.
The victim’s car was found abandoned across the street in another parking lot. Police found the two male suspects a few hours later near the Super 8 motel.
Authorities also charged the 14-year-old’s mother, Nichole Marie Moore, 38, with endangering a child. According to Moore’s arrest affidavit, she told investigators she knew her son was going to San Marcos to buy marijuana, but she denied any knowledge that there would be a robbery.
