Tyler Rhein Schobert, 20, died after being struck by a train Tuesday near the 600 block of East Hopkins Street.
Witnesses say Schobert stepped in front of the train at about 1:40 p.m, according to a press release from the City of San Marcos. Schobert was transported to University Medical Center at Brackenridge in Austin because of the severity of his injuries. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Schobert has a Texas State email account but does not appear in the student directory.
An employee of H-E-B who wished to remain anonymous said Schobert was a coworker. Workers have been told not to disclose any information about their brand partners, the source said.
“(Schobert) was a very quiet guy who kept to himself,” the source said.
The source said they did not know much about the incident, and H-E-B management has not told employees anything about the case.
City spokeswoman Melissa Millecam said the train was stopped near Hopkins Street and the H-E-B grocery store after the incident as emergency crews assessed the scene.
The San Marcos Police Department Collision Investigation Team is inspecting the incident.
