SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A South Texas man accused of breaking into a home during a drug-related robbery has been charged with capital murder after gunfire left two men dead.

Bexar (bayr) County jail records show Joseph Kirschberg of Helotes (hel-OH'-tis) was being held Saturday on $500,000 bond. No attorney was listed for Kirschberg, who was arrested Thursday.

San Antonio police say an apartment resident early Wednesday exchanged gunfire with intruders in a drug dispute. Police say the resident shot and killed a suspected intruder, Mikhael Moore. The resident accidentally shot and killed a friend, Zachary Manciu, he summoned for help.

Chief William McManus says the suspects and the resident knew each other. Police don't believe Kirschberg fired the fatal shots but he's charged with capital murder due to the motive behind the break-in.
