According to Edwin Lopez (a friend of Jacobs who had been with him that night) in an interview with ABC-13, the driver had witnessed a friend being attacked and was only trying to get away. He also stated that the altercation had spurred after the driver was asking around to see if anyone had seen his lost cell phone.

Jacobs and another were transported to a local hospital. Jacobs passed away due to injuries sustained in the vehicular attack according to media reports.

While there were multiple witnesses to the crime, it has been reported that the security cameras outside the bar were not recording at the time.

According to Jacobs’ social media, he also had recently been serving as a registered nurse at Houston Methodist. Jacobs, who according to the aforementioned Lopez interview with ABC-13, had just “come out … [to] have fun.” Jacobs had previously modeled before nursing. He was 25.

Those at the scene that night described large amounts of blood and chaos ensuing even before the driver struck his victims.

According to officials, the remaining three victims are expected to be okay. The driver has been charged with aggravated assault and will likely face charges for the death of Jacobs. The names of the remaining victims and the driver have not yet been released.
