A Message from President Denise M. Trauth

November 25, 2020

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

It is with great sadness that I must share with you that Texas State University student, Khambrail Winters, was killed last night in an off-campus shooting in San Marcos. 

Khambrail was a student-athlete in the football program at Texas State and his sudden death will be felt throughout the university community.  Our deepest sympathies go to Khambrail’s family and loved ones, including his teammates and coaches.  

Khambrail’s death is part of an ongoing San Marcos Police Department investigation into an event that occurred off-campus last night. San Marcos Police Department has informed us that they do not believe there is any ongoing danger to our university community. 

I know that this is very difficult news. Please find comfort in your friends and family and take advantage of the counseling center resources that we have at Texas State.


Denise M. Trauth
