Modesto man arrested for fatal shooting

POSTED July 10, 2009 9:08 p.m.
The suspect wanted for a shooting in Modesto’s airport district on Sunday was caught Wednesday afternoon, the same day the victim of the shooting died from his injuries.
At about 2:30 a.m. on Sunday Modesto police responded to the report of a shooting in the 600 block of Thrasher Avenue. When they arrived they found a man who had been shot and had critical, life threatening injuries. The victim, identified as 33-year-old Modesto resident Rene Luna Navarro, died at about 5 p.m. Wednesday at a local hospital, said Sgt. Brian Findlen.
Findlen said homicide detectives had been following up on leads and conducting interviews that led them to believe that 21-year-old Modesto resident David Garza was responsible for the murder of Navarro.
Members of the Modesto Police Homicide Unit and Street Crimes Unit served a search warrant at Garza’s home in the 1700 block of Connie Way late Wednesday morning. Garza was not at the home, but detectives developed information that led them to the Oak Motel in the 1900 block of Crows Landing Road in Modesto, where they found Garza walking near the intersection of Dallas and Glenn avenues. He was arrested without incident, Findlen said.
