(Texas State)

Texas State football player Khambrail Winters was killed in a shooting last night in San Marcos.


In a marijuana deal gone wrong, the 20-year-old football player was found with a gunshot wound to his chest Tuesday night. San Marcos police responded to a call at The Lodge Apartments shortly after 9 p.m., following reports of gunshots and people seen running from the area.

Winters and two other individuals, Enalisa Blackman and Michael Ifeanacho, planned to buy a couple ounces of marijuana. During the drug deal, gun shots were fired and Winters was shot.

Blackman and Ifeanacho, both 20, were arrested and charged with capital murder. Both are being held in the Hays County Jail. Police are investigating the identities of the other people involved in the shooting, as well as any other witnesses.

Those with information are asked to contact Detective Templeton at 512-753-2317 or btempleton@sanmarcostx.gov.

Winters, 20, was an honorable mention All-Sun Belt selection as a freshman football player in 2019. He had nine starts and played in 11 games with 52 tackles and four pass breakups. He did not play any games in 2020, because of a torn ACL.

Texas State Head Coach Jake Spavital released a statement: "Our Texas State University football team is deeply saddened by the death of our team member, and friend, Khambrail Winters. I met with players [Wednesday] morning to share this news about Khambrail. We will stand together as a team and support one and other during this very difficult time. Our thoughts and condolences are with Khabrail's family and loved ones."
