DALLAS - A teenage murder suspect told Dallas police that she targeted the wrong house during a drive-by shooting that killed a 79-year old woman.
Kimberly Garcia, 17, turned herself in to police on Saturday, and was charged with the murder of Gloria Roque. Her bond was set at $150,000. Earlier this month, police arrested a male juvenile in Roque's murder, but did not release his age or name.
According to police, Garcia told investigators she and three others were trying to target her ex-boyfriend's home on Halloween night. Instead, they shot Roque, as she sat inside her South Dallas home.
Garcia told police she drove the car, which belonged to her grandmother, but did not shoot.
The fatal shooting happened on Halloween night 2019, when Roque was inside her home with her daughter. A bullet fired from someone in a passing vehicle came through the front wall and hit her.
Her family said police told them her killing was a case of mistaken identity.
