(Newser) – At 12:30am Thursday, Rashad Owens was an aspiring rapper heading to perform at an Austin club during the South by Southwest festival. By 1am, he was in custody on charges that could bring the death penalty. The 21-year-old accused of driving his car into a crowd of people while fleeing police, killing two bystanders, raps under the names KillingAllBeatz and K.A.B254, reports the Austin American-Statesman. Owens was on his way to pick up his two brothers, who were waiting for him at another Austin club, when the police chase began, one of his brothers tells the newspaper.
