HPD Homicide Division Officers M.J. Miller and T.W. Miller reported:

Felix Castillo arrived at his residence after picking up his younger brother, Eric Castillo, from work. Eric was in Felix's room talking on his cell phone when Felix pulled a 12-gauge shotgun from underneath his bed and pointed it at the cell phone. While pointing it at the cell phone, Felix worked the pump action of the shotgun once so that the person on the other end of phone line could hear the racking action. The shotgun discharged once fatally striking Eric in the face.
