Around 10:30 a.m. that day, TCSO deputies responded to the 11800 of Garden Gate in southeast Travis County after a 911 caller reported someone shooting in front of his house. Deputies found four Hispanic males, two of whom had sustained a gunshot wound to the head.
Both men were transported to local hospitals and as part of the initial investigation, Garcia was arrested.
Later, one of the victims, 33-year-old Freddie Portillo of Austin succumbed to his wound. An autopsy was performed this week, says TCSO, which is now working with the Travis County District Attorney's office to seek a murder charge against Garcia.
