Suspect connected to San Marcos shooting arrested in Louisiana


SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — The suspect wanted in connection to a shooting in San Marcos was apprehended in Louisiana Wednesday night.

Davonte Tennille Miller, 20, was arrested after allegedly shooting an 18-year-old woman multiple times Tuesday. The victim was shot “in her extremities” and responding officers applied four tourniquets to slow the bleeding. She is expected to survive.

Miller was apprehended in Crowley, Louisiana around 10 p.m. Police say he initially fled from police but was finally taken into custody by the Crowley Police Department.

Police transferred Miller to the Acadia Parish Jail in Crowley where he was booked on charges of hit-and-run, aggravated flight from an officer, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a legend drug.

The shooting happened around 7:54 p.m. Tuesday on the 600 block of Mill Street in a parking lot near the victim’s home. That area is near Bobcat Village and Texas State students received an alert, but the school reiterated that the shooting did not happen on campus.

Surveillance video showed a 2010 Hyundai Genesis pull into the parking lot before three shots were fired and Miller and a woman ran to the car. The car then sped off, police say.

The woman who ran to the car does not face charges at this time.

“The preliminary investigation shows drugs may be a factor in the incident,” police wrote in a release.

According to San Marcos police, when Miller returns to Hays County he will face a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
