Two arrests were made by U.S. Marshals on Thursday in connection with the deadly shooting of 19-year-old Isaac Garcia on Monday in Mission Plaza on Ayers Street.

39-year-old Benjamin Peña and 18-year-old Devin Peña were charged with murder by the Corpus Christi Police Department, according to an email from the U.S. Marshal's office. A $500,000 bond was placed on both men.

UPDATE (Feb. 14, 2:15 p.m.):

The man who died in the shooting on Monday was 19-year-old Isaac Anthony Garcia, according to the Nueces County Medical Examiner.


One man is dead following a shooting near the 4900 block of Ayers Street, according to Corpus Christi Police Department officials.

The CCPD received a call for a shooting at about 4:46 p.m. Monday.

Senior Public Information Officer Travis Pace said about 10 minutes later, they received a call that a man was at the hospital with a gunshot wound.

Pace confirmed the man later died of his injuries.

Pace said several vehicles were damaged in the shooting by stray gunfire.

He added the alleged shooter is not in custody.

The two involved in the shooting are believed to have "some knowledge of each other," Pace said, which makes them believe it was not a random act of violence.

There were no other injuries to report in the incident.
