Flagstaff, Ariz.- (July 15, 2019), On 07/11/2019, a victim parked his vehicle in the parking lot at the apartment complex located at 2251 N. Izabel.  While parked, a dark colored SUV with chrome door handles drove by the victim sitting in his vehicle and stopped.  The driver of the suspect vehicle shot multiple rounds at the victim striking the victim multiple times.  The victim sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was treated and released from the Flagstaff Medical Center.  The initial investigation indicates the shooting was directed at the victim and his vehicle and does not appear to be a random incident.

On 07/14/2019 Flagstaff Police received a Silent Witness “tip” regarding the location of a suspect and vehicle believed to be involved in the shooting. Flagstaff Police Officers, working alongside GIITEM Detectives, conducted extensive hours of follow-up regarding the information received from Silent Witness and located a vehicle consistent with the description provided by the victim. In addition to a suspect vehicle, officers and detectives located the suspected shooter, identified as Isaac Garcia, 38, Flagstaff. Subsequent execution of search warrants led to the seizure of a firearm and other items of evidence. Mr. Garcia was arrested, without incident, and booked into the Coconino County Detention Facility for Assault-Drive by Shooting; Aggravated Assault–Deadly Weapon/Dangerous Instrument; Possession of a Weapon by a Prohibited Possessor; and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
