Update on Incident at 1900 Brooks

January 30, 2007 -- Houston police homicide investigators have arrested one suspect and believe others were involved in the fatal shooting of a man at 1900 Brooks on July 10, 2006.

The suspect, identified as Ricardo Garcia (H/m, DOB 1-4-80), is charged with capital murder in the 185th State District Court. He is accused in the killing of Marin Trevino, 25, of 6413 Neff.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeants J. Parker, M. McStravick, C. Howard and Officer R. Moreno reported:

Witnesses reported hearing gunshots in the area of 1900 Brooks about 3:45 a.m. on July 10, 2006. Officers responded and found a vehicle with an open trunk parked at the location. Further investigation revealed a male’s body was inside the trunk. The male had suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was dead at the scene.

A follow-up investigation revealed Trevino was killed during a narcotics deal that went bad. Garcia was eventually developed as one of the suspects in this case.

Homicide investigators contacted and received support from the HPD SWAT Team, Gang Division, Northeast Patrol Warrant Execution Team, and a Harris County Sheriff’s Office Narcotic K-9. All went to Garcia’s residence at 501 Majestic where Garcia was taken into custody last Wednesday (Jan. 24). Investigators recovered a large amount of drugs and charged Garcia and his wife, Mercedes Reyna Flores (H/f, DOB: 4-21-81), with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. Three children in the home at the time of the arrests were unharmed and released to their grandparents at the scene.
