Victim identified in game room homicide
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Conrad Garcia, 32, died after a shooting at a game room on Weber Rd. early Sunday morning.
Corpus Christi Police were dispatched to the 4500 Block of Weber Road near Gollihar at approximately 4:10 a.m. When they arrived, they found an adult Hispanic male with multiple gunshot wounds outside the game room.
The man was transported to the hospital, where he passed away, making the shooting a homicide. Lieutenant Michael Pena with CCPD's Public Information Office said police are investigating the incident.
"At this time we do not have a description of the offender, offender vehicle or how many offenders there were," Pena said. "Hopefully the Criminal Investigation Division will be able to piece together some information to put that information out and hopefully locate the offenders."
Pena also said that police are looking around the area of the scene to see if there were any working cameras that got another angle of the shooting. Police said that there were likely witnesses to the shooting inside the game room, so detectives will be interviewing them to get more clarity on the homicide.
"That'll help put together the pieces of the puzzle, to hopefully determine why it happened and who the offenders may be," Pena said.
Police have not identified a suspect.
If you know anything about this shooting, you're asked to call Corpus Christi Crimestoppers at 888-TIPS.

17-year-old charged in Austin murder, arrested in Corpus Christi
AUSTIN (KXAN) — A teen wanted in connection with a north Austin homicide on Sept. 9 was taken into custody Monday in Corpus Christi, the Austin Police Department said Wednesday.
APD said Charles Michael Deshan Walker, 17, was arrested at a hotel in Corpus Christi by an area task force and he’s currently in Nueces County Jail on a $150,000 bond. Walker faces a charge of first-degree murder.
Walker is accused of shooting and killing David Bryan Herrera around 5:25 p.m. at 7701 Cameron Road, the address for a gas station near East Anderson Lane and U.S. Highway 183.
APD said according to witness accounts and surveillance videos, Herrera “made a comment” to a woman leaving a convenience store and walking back to her car. Walker was in the car, and according to police, stepped out of the car and shot Herrera “several times.” The couple then left the scene in an Acura SUV, according to police.
A Travis County Medical Examiner autopsy done Sept. 10 confirmed Herrera died due to the gunshot wounds and the manner of death was ruled homicide.
Attorney information for Walker was not immediately available. Once it becomes available, we will request a statement on behalf of Walker and update this story when we receive it.

Homicide cases up in 2020 according to Corpus Christi police, two unsolved murders remain
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — 2020 has proven to be a busy year for homicide detectives in the Corpus Christi Police Department as they have worked tirelessly to investigate and solve several murders, many of which happened just in the last few months.
At least three murders have happened in December. The latest cases have put the city's homicide count at 34 -- more than last year's total. In fact, more than the last few years.
- In 2019 there were 31 homicide investigations.
- In 2018 there were 29.
- In 2017 there were 22.
- In 2016 there were 26.
Taking a closer look at this year's count, Corpus Christi police said there are a very small number of cases that remain unsolved -- just two.
"The detectives don't go home after they go out to a scene. They work some long hours to try and get that family and the victim justice," CCPD Lt. Michael Pena said. "To show there are only two cases from this year that are still trying to identify an offender, I think that speaks well of not just the officers and detectives but the community also."
One of those unsolved murders is the shooting death of 20-year-old Nicholas Godwin. The murder took place back on June 21 at the Glen Willows Apartments off Everhart Road. Four people were shot in that incident.
The second incident took place back on Oct. 26 when a man's body was found off I-37 at Labonte park.
If you have any information that can help bring closure to these cases, call 361-886-2600.
