Since September 1st, Bexar County Grand Juries have handed down indictments in 396 felony cases – 135 of these involve family or domestic violence and are assigned to the Family Violence division of the Bexar County Criminal District Attorney’s Office. The remainder of the cases, 261, are being prosecuted by the Office's Felony Criminal Trial Division.
Among the cases are the following:
Brandon Jay Clark was indicted on a charge of murder. The indictment alleges that on April 2, 2019, Clark was attempted to commit the felony offense of aggravated assault and, in the course of or immediately after the aggravated assault and while attempting to escape, Clark shot and killed Mr. Ramiro Longoria with a firearm. Clark was also indicted on two additional charges of aggravated assault for shooting two other surviving complainants on the same date.
Thomas De La Garza was indicted for murder. The indictment alleges that on June 21, 2019, De La Garza intentionally or knowingly shot and killed Santiago Escamilla by shooting him with a firearm.
An indictment is a charge and should not be considered evidence of guilt. These cases are pending trial so our office can make no further comment.
