Nineteen-year-old Joshua Tyler Garcia, who turned himself in to Lubbock police on Friday, July 9th, has now been charged with murder out of San Angelo.

KAMC News reports that at 1:16 a.m. on Monday, June 28th, San Angelo police responded to the Inn of the Conchos, located in the 2000 block of North Bryant, in reference to a shooting victim. Upon arrival, officers found the victim, 41-year-old Daniel Chandler, with a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Garcia, along with Cody Ray Salazar, who was arrested back on Tuesday, July 6th, have been listed as suspects. Police have yet to say which of the pair shot Chandler.

Garcia was also wanted for shooting at a police officer during a chase in Lubbock on January 18th. As previously reported by KFYO, police responded to the 4700 block of 45th Street to reports of a vehicle burglary and began a chase. During that chase, Garcia was in the passenger seat of the vehicle, and allegedly fired shots at the pursuing officer, disabling the vehicle. The officer was uninjured.

Julian David Ramirez was said to have been the driver of the vehicle and was arrested earlier in the year.

Garcia remains in jail with an aggravated assault against a public servant charge, and the murder charge out of Tom Green County.
