A 16 year-old boy is behind bars and accused of killing a 43 year-old father.
Elsa's Police Chief Mario Cavazos says Rene Garcia got angry at a teen boy who apparently liked his daughter and told the boy to leave his house. As the teen got into his car he waved a gun at Garcia and drove off. The father followed the the teen up to Highway 107 and Hidalgo street where Garcia pulled out a baseball bat and hit the teen's car, in return the teen shot Garcia. EMS did take Garcia to the hospital and died from his wounds and the teen was arrested and sent to the Hidalgo county juvenile detention center.
