SAN ANTONIO – A 37-year-old man charged in a shooting that claimed the lives of two people and seriously injured another was indicted by a Bexar County grand jury.

Fernando Rojas was indicted on charges of capital murder of multiple persons and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in connection with a shooting on Aug. 3 in southeast Bexar County.

According to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, a domestic dispute escalated into a shooting near Loop 1604 and Roddy Road, not far from New Sulphur Springs Road and Calaveras Lake.

Killed in the shooting were Sareena Kay Bain, 28, and Jonathan K. Fann, 38.
