SPRING BRANCH, Texas – A man who is accused of killing two people, including the mother of his child, inside of a home in Spring Branch on Thanksgiving Day has reportedly turned himself into police.

According to the Houston Police Department, 38-year-old Yonetsy Montriel Granado turned himself into San Antonio police around 9 a.m. on Friday. Granado has been charged with two counts of capital murder and two counts of aggravated assault.

The quadruple shooting was reported at a home, located in the 1500 block of Baggett Lane, around 9:17 p.m. on Nov. 24.

The family had just finished having a Thanksgiving dinner when Granado forcibly entered the family’s home through the back door, according to court documents. Granado reportedly pulled out a small pistol and shot and killed his ex-wife, 38-year-old Yusleidy Gonzalez, and her new boyfriend, Eric Van, 64.

Officials said he also shot and injured two additional people, a 15-year-old and a 32-year-old, inside the residence. The surviving victims were taken to area hospitals in stable condition.

On Nov. 25, at San Antonio’s main police station, Granado admitted to investigators that he “blacked out” and did not remember what happened next and asked for an attorney, according to court documents.

Officials say Granado is currently being held in the Bexar County jail and expected to be transported to Harris County Jail.
