Two people are dead and five injured after a person “randomly” opened fire in a bar in San Antonio on Sunday evening.

The San Antonio Police Department responded to a shootout at a bar called Ventura, just steps from the San Antonio River, at 8:00 p.m. Local time. A conflict seems to have broken out between customers when a person pulled out a gun and started shooting, police chief William McManus said at a press conference on Sunday evening.

Five people are currently being treated in local hospitals. The situation is currently unclear, the police said.

All victims seem to be patrons, said McManus. No bar staff were shot.

On Monday, the police said they had arrested Kieran Christopher Williams (19) in connection with the shootout and were charged with murder.

“He told me he was going to kill me,” Williams said. “He told me because I met him that he was going to kill me. Don’t worry about me, I’m fine.”

Williams also described himself as an aspiring music artist and asked people to follow him on Instagram before he was loaded into a police vehicle.

“I regret everything I’ve done,” he added.

The chief of police had indicated on Sunday that they would quickly be arrested.

“We are working on it and I am confident that we will identify and detain the person sooner rather than later,” said McManus.

The concert, entitled Living the DREAM, featured a number of aspiring rappers who are very popular on social media.
