SAN ANTONIO – A 17-year-old rapper is behind bars accused of two murders, one in San Antonio and the other outside of Fort Worth.

Taymor McIntyre, also known as Tay-K-47 by his fans, was booked into the Tarrant County Jail in July.

On July 27, 2016, five people were involved in a robbery and shooting outside of Fort Worth that left a man dead. A capital murder warrant went out for McIntyre’s alleged involvement.

McIntyre also has a warrant out for his arrest in Bexar County since June 26, but since he’s listed as a juvenile in the Bexar County system, law enforcement will not release which murder he's accused of committing.

The teen was arrested in New Jersey and booked into the Tarrant County Jail on July 20. On Sept. 20, Tarrant County certified him as an adult and he’s being kept in a facility with adult inmates.

Prior to his arrest, McIntyre posed with his own wanted poster in his music video for "The Race."

Even though the rapper is behind bars, his rap video on YouTube is still collecting more than 62 million views. His fans even started a campaign called free Tay-K.
