A 21-year-old Texas man is being charged with capital murder in the deaths of two people when he allegedly drove through a crowd at the South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. 

A district court judge set bail at three-million dollars for Rashad Owens. He was reportedly legally drunk when he plowed through a barricade and continued driving into crowd of people for nearly three blocks early Thursday. 

According to police, Owens was attempting to flee from police who were trying to pull him over for suspected drunk driving. 

Owens could still be facing aggravated assault charges for the 23 people who were hurt, including two listed in critical condition with head injuries.
