A Kyle resident is among six people arrested in San Marcos Tuesday in connection with the death of Kevin Yankovoy of Wimberley.

Angelo Quihuiz, 18, of Kyle is charged with capital murder by terroristic threat/other felony. John Coronado, 18, of San Marcos faces the same charge. Three juveniles were also charged.

According to a press release from the San Marcos Police Department, officers located Yankovoy, 18, inside a Ford truck that had collided with others vehicles toward the rear of the Cedars apartment complex shortly after 11:30 p.m. Monday He had been shot multiple times and was pronounced dead at Central Texas Medical Center (CTMC).

There were also two other people in the car. Juan Ramires, 21, of Wimberley was treated at CTMC for a gunshot wound to the arm and then released from the hospital. Garrett Varner, 18, of Wimberley was uninjured.

“Initial reports said there were possibly six individuals in a green 2001 Infiniti SUV during the incident, included three who ran from the scene” before police arrived, the news release said. Those were the three juveniles charged. All were transported to the Hays County Juvenile Detention Center.

At approximately 2 a.m. Tuesday, police responded to a burglary at Raceway on Hwy. 80 near the San Marcos Wal-Mart in which the offenders fled in a green 2001 infinity SUV. Witnesses were able to get a license plate number. 

Police located the vehicle almost three hours later, after a report of shots fired in the area of Wonder World Park on Prospect Street and “held the vehicle at gunpoint until additional officers arrived on scene” to assist.

Several guns were subsequently found in the SUV, as were Quihuiz, Coronado and a 15-year-old boy.
