COMAL COUNTY - Police have detained a 15-year-old suspect as part of an ongoing homicide investigation in New Braunfels.

The suspect was detained without incident on Sunday at the New Braunfels Police Department Headquarters and transported to the Guadalupe County Juvenile Detention Center, police say. He has been charged with murder in connection to the shooting death of 17-year-old Conrad Kuntz.

When police arrived at the scene, they found the victim, identified as Kuntz, suffering from a gunshot wound. EMS attempted to revive Kuntz, but he died from his injuries.

Police ask anyone with information involving the incident to call the Comal County Crime Stoppers. Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information that leads to an arrest and/or grand jury indictment.

To remain anonymous and to collect the reward, contact Crime Stoppers at 830-620-TIPS (8477), leave a tip online or text a tip by texting “Comal” plus your message to CRIMES (274637).
