The case documents consulted by MundoNow do not specify whether Jesús García and Enrique Amador García are related as they have the same last name.

Detectives from the Homicide Division of the Houston Police Department (HPD) investigated the murder of Carlos Govea Reséndiz.

On Friday, January 5, 2024, the sound of several gunshots broke the tranquility of the night in the Hispanic neighborhood of Northside.

At 9:10 p.m., several people called the HPD emergency number to report shooting outside an apartment complex.

HPD officers went to investigate the La Casita complex, 215 Sunnyside Street, where there is a large Hispanic population.

When the HPD officers arrived at the scene they found Carlos Govea Reséndiz badly wounded.

Then detectives from the HPD Homicide Division took up the investigation and headed to the populous Northside neighborhood.

HPD detectives closed the parking lot of the apartment complex and found evidence that two weapons had been used in the shooting.

However, none of the neighbors or store owners in the area saw anything since Carlos Govea Reséndiz was killed in the middle of the night.

The case was a true mystery for investigators who did not know about Jesús García and Enrique Amador García.
