HPD Homicide Division
Officers D. Williamson and K. Ferguson reported:
Mr. Garcia and a
convenience store employee were exciting the store at the above address when
when they were shot by men burglarizing a vehicle parked in front of the store.
At this time, it appears there was no confrontation between the burglars
and the victims, nor was any warning given. It also does not appear the
victims knew the burglars.
Garcia died at the
hospital. The store employee was also transported to an area hospital
where he is expected to survive.
The suspects are
described only as four young, adult black males. They fled the scene in a
light blue or silver Chrysler 200.
Anyone with information
on this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or
