About two days after celebrating his 18th birthday, a hunting accident
claimed the life of Breckenridge High School student Adam Garcia.
At 8:03 p.m. Sunday, Chief Sheriff’s Deputy Billy Wade and Deputy Jim
Pence responded to a shooting at CR 182, in northeastern Stephens County.
While on a hunting trip with friends, Garcia, the son of Dick and Connie
Garcia of Breckenridge, had reportedly received a gunshot wound to the
abdomen and was rushed to Stephens Memorial Hospital by Breckenridge
Emergency Medical Services.
He was later flown by air ambulance to Hendrick Medical Center and was
rushed into surgery where he was later pronounced dead at 11:52 p.m. by
surgeon Dr. Richard Frazee.
Stephens County Sheriff Dan Young said the incident is still under
investigation, along with assistance from the District Attorney’s office.
Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Game Warden Ed Russell is also assisting
with the investigation. Funeral services will be at 2 p.m. Thursday, April
9, at Bethany Baptist Church and are under the direction of Melton-Kitchens
Funeral Home in Breckenridge.
