Two brothers were arrested in a weekend shooting in Garland that killed one person and hospitalized another.
Christopher Sagrero 17, and Jose Sagrero 19, each face a murder charge, according to Garland police. The brothers were initially booked into the Dallas County jail on one count each of aggravated assault, but the charges were elevated once the victim died, said Lt. Richard Maldonado, a police spokesman.
About 4:30 p.m. Saturday, officers responded to a “weapons disturbance” call in the 400 block of South Forest Crest Drive, police said. They found one person who had been shot and were told a second victim had already gone to a medical facility.
One of the victims, 24-year-old Moises Flores of Dallas, died Monday, police said. The other victim is currently stable at a hospital, police said Tuesday.
Steven LaFuente, an attorney for Jose Sagrero, said after speaking with his client that it appears a “chaotic scene” ensued at the barbershop where the shooting occurred.
“I’m very certain that this case will involve various defensive theories, such as self-defense and defense of others,” LaFuente said in a text message, adding additional details in the case will be available after a bond reduction hearing for his client.
A lawyer representing Christopher Sagrero did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Police did not say how they connected the Sagreros to the shooting.
The brothers remained in custody Tuesday afternoon with bail set at $250,000 each, although it was unclear whether that would be changed after the charges were upgraded.
