4/28/2009 - Double shooting with one fatality

18-year old Fermin Garcia was shot and killed and a 19-year old male wounded in the head after an altercation on the 1400 block of Hilltop Drive, near Loma Verde Park.

Witnesses say it happened just before three o'clock when the two men, who were walking on Hilltop Drive, got into a verbal altercation with an unknown number of males in a two-door gray or silver car, possibly a Mitsubishi or Pontiac.

At some point during the verbal altercation, one male got out of the car with a handgun and fired at Garcia hitting him in the torso and grazing the 19-year-old's head.

The gunman then got back in the car and the driver fled southbound on Hilltop Drive.

Garcia and the other male were transported to an area hospital where Garcia was pronounced dead. The other male was treated for a non-life threatening injury,

A motive for the shooting has not been established, though there is suspicion that gang rivalry may've played a role.

The gunman is described as Hispanic, about 6 feet tall, close cropped hair, thin build, a mustache and possible tattoos on his arms.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the CVPD at 691-5151.
