Tay-K’s problems are far from over.
Tay-K, whose real name is Taymor McIntyre, was found guilty of murder Friday. He was accused of taking part in a deadly home invasion robbery that left 21-year-old Ethan Walker dead, and Zachary Beloate wounded.
Tay-K must now await sentencing for the murder conviction and three aggravated robbery convictions. He faces five to 99 years or life in prison on each.
Tay-K is facing another capital murder charge for the shooting death of 23-year-old Mark Saldivar at a Bexar County Chick-Fil-A. The April 23, 2017 fatal shooting – captured on surveillance – reportedly occurred at a North Side Chik-fil-A at 27 Northeast Loop 410.
Witnesses reportedly saw three people arguing in the back of a black SUV on the Loop 410 access road and someone in the front passenger seat pointed a gun at Saldivar, according to the police report. Saldivar got out of the car and started yelling for help, then stood in front of the SUV. The driver accelerated at Saldivar, but Saldivar held onto the SUV as it swerved, then jumped onto the vehicle after it pulled into the Chik-fil-A parking lot and began kicking the windshield.
The front passenger stepped out of the car, shot Saldivar once, and the four occupants, which included Tay-K, drove off. The identities of the other three suspects are not known at this time.
Police found Saldivar’s body in the restaurant’s parking lot with loose marijuana in his mouth and a bag of the drug underneath him.
Tay-K is accused of being involved in the crime while on the run. Tay-K was placed on house arrest for his role in a deadly home invasion robbery in July 2016. He cut off his ankle monitor in March and remained a fugitive until he was finally captured in late June in New Jersey.
Tay-K is also accused of aggravated robbery charges in Bexar County for allegedly be beating a then 65-year-old man.
Tay-K can possibly receive a life sentence for those crimes. He can’t be given the death penalty because he was a minor when he allegedly committed the crimes.
