“Kirven had shot two people in the head in the 11 hundred block of Texas Avenue in Mart and so Kirven was arrested with that incident,” says McLennan County sheriff Parnell McNamara.

Officers arrested Zamar Kirven, who is now in the McLennan County Jail facing a Capital Murder charge.

McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara says the three men played high school football together.

“We’re not sure at this time, we really don’t know, they were all known to each other and Kirven had been a star linebacker for the University of Houston football team,” says Sheriff McNamara.

Kirven was former linebacker for the University of Houston.

Sheriff McNamara says this is an ongoing investigation and more information will be released later.
