Couple shot and killed while sitting in a parked car in South Austin


Another senseless killing. Family members say shortly before 2 a.m. Sunday, 26-year-old Martrice Luster and 20-year-old Keshonda Maxey were talking inside a parked car on the 100 block of N. Lockwood Avenue when shots rang out. Maxey was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene, while Luster was shot multiple times and rushed to Stroger Hospital where he later died. The motive of their killing remains unclear, and no suspects have been taken into custody. Tamekia Butler, the grandmother of Luster’s five-year-old son, says the two were a loving young couple who enjoyed spending time with their blended family.
