SAN ANTONIO - A pair of brothers suspected of stabbing and shooting their cousin in October were arrested and charged Saturday, both on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
As of Sunday afternoon, Bexar County Jail records show Paul Garcia, 27, was the only brother held in lieu of a $75,000 bond. His brother, Gus Garcia, 22, also a suspect in the shooting, remained in custody, according to jail records. His bond was set at $75,000.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit, the brothers are both cousins with the victim, Carlos Moya. Paul Garcia and Moya both had dated the same woman, and each man each had a child with her, states the affidavit.
On October 23, 2012, Moya received a message from Paul Garcia informing him that he intended to kill him, said police. Moya went to his son's residence where he was confronted by Paul Garcia who pulled a gun out, according to the affidavit.
Police said Moya was able to get away from the residence after knocking the gun out of Paul Garcia's hand, but later returned with his brother, Gus Garcia. The pair allegedly engaged in a fight with Moya. Police say Paul Garcia allegedly stabbed Moya while Gus Garcia fired two gunshots in the air. The affidavit says Gus Garcia then shot Moya in the head.
Moya was airlifted to University Hospital, police said, but survived.
