8/31/2016 - Trio Indicted for Capital Murder of 5-year-old Girl

San Antonio, Texas, August 31, 2016: Yesterday, a Bexar County Grand Jury indicted three men suspected in the shooting death of 5-year-old Ana Garza.

Abdi Abdi, age 18, Murjan Abdi, age 19, and Christian Lopez, age 19, were all indicted for Capital Murder. The indictment alleges the three men, together with an unidentified fourth suspect, approached a home in the 800 block of Pecan Valley on June 1, 2016. The suspects shot and severely injured the victim’s stepfather, before shooting into the home where other family members, including Ana Garza, congregated.

The 5-year-old was sleeping on a mattress in the front room when she was struck in the head. She passed away from her injuries a week later. The suspects fled the scene in a vehicle that had been stolen at gunpoint two days before this incident. Evidence in the case indicates the suspects
were seeking to burglarize the home at the time of the shooting.

Capital Murder is a first degree felony, punishable by life in prison without the possibility of parole or death. The cases are pending in the 226th District Court.
