Previously Released Sept. 25: Police Searching for Suspect in Overnight Shooting

An 18-year-old woman is recovering after being shot multiple times on Mill Street Tuesday night. Police are searching for the suspect identified as Davonte Tennille Miller (02/03/1999).

At approximately 7:54 p.m. Tuesday night, the San Marcos Police Department responded to the 600 block of Mill Street after neighbors heard gunshots in the area.

Responding officers located an 18-year-old woman who had been shot multiple times in her extremities, and applied four tourniquets to her injuries. The victim was transported by EMS to Ascension Seton Hays in Kyle and is expected to survive.

An investigation determined the shooting happened in a parking lot near the victim’s residence. Area surveillance video shows a 2010 Hyundai Genesis pull into the parking lot, and back into a parking space. A few moments later, the video picks up three gunshots, followed by two people running to the offender’s vehicle. The vehicle then speeds off at a high rate of speed.

After speaking with witnesses on the scene, police identified Miller as the shooting suspect.  The second person who ran to the vehicle is an unidentified female and has no charges at this time.

SMPD has obtained an arrest warrant for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly weapon for Miller.  The preliminary investigation shows drugs may be a factor in the incident.

Anyone with information about the shooting or regarding Miller’s whereabouts is asked to contact Detective Raven at 512.753.2303.

MEDIA NOTE: SMPD will not be available for interviews.  Please direct additional questions to communicationsinfo@sanmarcostx.gov.
