Shooting At Sweet 16 Party Leaves Texas Girl’s Brother Dead

HOUSTON (September 24, 2012)--An 18-year-old Houston man was in custody charged with murder Monday after a shooting at a girl's Sweet 16 birthday party that left the teen’s brother dead.

Johnny Robert Benavidez was charged in the shooting, which happened just after midnight Sunday.

The victim, Edgar Garcia, 27, was found dead on a driveway in north Houston.

Authorities say about a dozen people showed up uninvited to the Sweet 16 party.

A fight broke out when they were asked to leave.

They did leave eventually, but then returned to the home where another argument began, during which the shots were fired.
