SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — The San Marcos Police Department is asking for the public’s help in gathering information related to four deadly conduct incidents that happened over the weekend.

There are no known injuries in any of the incidents, police said, but all involve suspects firing a weapon. Two of the shootings might be related.

Police said just after 5 p.m., officers responded to Dunbar Park off Martin Luther King Drive for a discharged firearm and a potential disturbance or assault. Officers found shell casings from the scene as evidence. Anyone with information on who might have done this can call Det. Campbell at (512) 753-2312 or email

Feb. 28, The Retreat Apartments

Just after 2 a.m., officers responded to the Retreat Apartments on Craddock Avenue for reports of a discharged firearm and a possible disturbance near the 1600 building, police said.

The men were not allowed inside, and one of them fired a gun into the air a few times, police said. Witnesses reported another man pointed an assault rifle at a bystander.

They were not allowed in, police said, and one of them fired an assault rifle. One resident returned fire, according to witnesses, but no one was hurt. Police said the suspects then fled. Responding officers found shell casings at the scene and bullet holes in the apartment hosting the party, in nearby apartments and in a car parked nearby, police said.
