A second person connected to Saturday morning's Sixth Street mass shooting has been arrested. The Austin Police Department confirmed they arrested a 17-year-old male suspect in Killeen on Monday.

The suspect has been identified as Jeremiah Roshaun Leland James Tabb, who will be charged as an adult with aggravated assault, officials confirmed. He was arrested without incident while enrolled in a summer school class.

Police arrested the first suspect, a 16-year-old male, on Saturday evening. It is still not known what charges the suspect will face and since he is a minor, court records and identity will likely remain confidential.

The shooting occurred in the early morning hours of Saturday, June 12, when two men fired shots into a large crowd on the 400 block of East Sixth Street and injured 13, killing one. Investigators believe there was "some type of disturbance" between the two parties.

A 25-year-old tourist visiting from New York, named Douglas John Kantor, succumbed to his injuries while in the hospital on Sunday afternoon. He leaves behind family and his high-school sweetheart.

The investigation is still ongoing and information can still be reported by calling 911 or the police tip line at 512-472-TIPS.


Pickleball gold rush links LeBron with Austin and a network of local investors like Brené Brown

King James

It's not on the level of LeBron signing with the Spurs, but who knows, maybe you'll see him at Guero's one day, having a Rob's Especial marg and a No. 1 dinner?

LeBron James, Draymond Green, Kevin Love, LeBron's business partner Maverick Carter, and a bunch of other sports-related investors are buying a Major League Pickleball expansion franchise.

Oddly, MLP teams aren't associated with places, so at this point it's just "an expansion team."

But Major League Pickelball is based in Austin, created, according to the Austin Business Journal, by Dreamland and Richard's Rainwater owner Steve Kuhn.

League investors include familiar Austin names like C3 Presents founders Charles Attal and Charlie Walker, Parsley Energy founder and partial Austin FC owner Brian Sheffield, Silicon Labs Chairman Nav Sooch, and pickleball enthusiast Brené Brown.
