Stone was Garcia’s estranged brother, according to a police report.

“The victims had just gotten out of their car when the suspect approached and started shooting outside the house,” said Alicia Inns, a Cedar Park Police spokeswoman

Adam Venegas, a family friend, said Monday he was shocked by the shooting and has since started a GoFundMe page to help Garcia’s family pay for hospital and funeral costs.
