Christopher Lee Williams, 19, of Manor, Travis County, Texas, United States has been arrested. He is accused of killing Texas State University student Khambrail Winters, 20.
At around 9:13 p.m. on November 24, 2020, Winters was fatally shot in the chest at The Lodge Apartments in San Marcos, Hays County, Texas. His girlfriend Enalisa Blackman, 20, and another man named Michael Ifeanacho, 20, were later arrested.
Blackman told the authorities that she, Winters and Ifeanacho planned to ask a drug dealer to bring an ounce of marijuana, meet up with the drug dealer and take the marijuana without paying. The plan was for her to rob the drug dealer alone while Winters and Ifeanacho hide in a utility closet and come out in case she would not be able to take the drugs alone.
Williams was reportedly the drug dealer. He showed up with another person, which was not part of the plan, so Winters and Ifeanacho allegedly came out of the closet and ran toward the drug dealers.
That was when Williams allegedly shot Winters. The gunman escaped and allegedly threw the gun he used to shoot the victim in Lady Bird Lake, a reservoir on the Colorado River in Austin, Texas.
After Winters’ death, Blackman and Ifeanacho were arrested and booked into the Hays County Jail. They were both charged with capital murder.
On February 6, 2021, a warrant for Williams’ arrest was issued in Hays County. On February 25, 2021, the U.S. Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force arrested him without incident in Manor, KVUE reported.
Williams was charged with homicide and tampering with physical evidence and booked into the Travis County Jail. He will be extradited to Hays County.
Winters played football and ran track in Alief Taylor High School in Houston, Texas. He was a member of the Texas State University’s football team and was a sophomore defensive back.
