Army Vet Francisco Garcia Fatally Shot at Homecoming Party in Sylmar

GUN VIOLENCE: Army veteran Francisco Garcia, 22, was shot and killed at a homecoming party thrown for him at his girlfriend’s home Saturday night in Sylmar, Calif.

Police say Garcia had returned home from Afghanistan about two weeks ago. Los Angeles Police Dept. Lt. Paul Vernon said, “The ironies are obvious. To survive as a soldier in an overseas confict, only to be killed in your old neighborhood upon your return.”

Lt. Vernon said apparently Francisco Garcia was the intended target of the shooting, which occurred in the 13000 block of Dronefield Avenue. He was gunned down as he stood on the sidewalk after the party moved outside.

A Hispanic man exited a dark SUV, smashed a beer bottle on the ground and shouted at Garcia from across the street, the news release states. The man then retrieved a handgun from an occupant in a white car, possibly a Toyota or a Honda, and then fired on Francisco Garcia, who was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Vernon said, “It appears Francisco was the target of the attack” that may have stemmed from a “simmering dispute” that had “boiled over during the night.”
