GCSO: 19-year-old shot, killed at Texas Renaissance Festival campgrounds by 22-year-old
The Grimes County Sheriff’s Office says the shooting happened during an argument between a group of people who knew each other.
TODD MISSION, Texas (KBTX) - The Grimes County Sheriff’s Office has identified the suspect and victim in Sunday’s fatal shooting on the campgrounds of the Texas Renaissance Festival.
Sean Campbell, 22, of Spring has been booked into the Grimes County jail on two counts of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.
He’s accused of shooting Isabella Cimetta, 19, of Spring.
Investigators say the two knew each other and traveled to the festival together with friends.
Prior to the shooting, around 2:40 a.m. deputies responded to Row 5 of the campgrounds for a reported disturbance in progress. When they arrived, they found Cimetta had been shot once in the stomach.
She was flown to a hospital in Bryan where she later passed away from her injuries.
According to a probable cause affidavit obtained by KBTX, Campbell was pointing a handgun at another man who was arguing with Cimetta. That man attempted to disarm Campbell and that’s when the gun went off and struck Cimetta in the stomach.
Campbell left the scene after the shot was fired. He was later found in a vehicle along with the gun that was used.
The sheriff’s office says it was an isolated incident and there’s no danger to the general public. A spokeswoman for the organization said the Festival would still be open today to the public.
