Austin Police issued a murder warrant for Endicott McCray who is responsible for shooting into a crowd on 6th Street just after 2am on Sunday. At first it was thought to be an active shooter due to two shootings close by within a short time. That later was determined not to be the case.
Police say McCray got into a fight with his brother in-law. A friend of McCray’s wife says a group of them were out when she saw McCray’s wife’s brother “shove” McCray. In response, witnesses say McCray pulled out a handgun that he had in his waistband and pointed the gun at his brother-in-law. Police say he fired one shot into the ground, then raised the firearm, turned it sideways and fired “up to four more gunshots.”
Innocent bystander, Teqnika Marie Moultrie, 30, was shot and killed as she walked down a crowded sidewalk with her wife and friends. Police interviewed Teqnika’s wife, Sabrina, who said they were in Austin visiting friends and decided to go downtown Saturday night. They had just left Voodoo Doughnuts at 212 E. Sixth St. when gunshots rang out. Sabrina said she dived to the ground and turned to see Teqnika with a gunshot wound to her head, according to a police affidavit. Teqnika died at the scene.
Four surviving victims were taken to University Medical Center Brackenridge with life-threatening and non-life threatening injuries to the chest, thigh, ankle and buttock. One of the injured victims was part of a bachelorette party on Sixth Street that night.
Police said the last known address for McCray was in San Marcos but he also had an address in Pflugerville.
McCray was spotted this morning walking down a sidewalk in the East Point area of Atlanta near the MARTA bus station. He was taken into custody without incident. Officials say he had cut his hair to change his appearance.
