"I want justice for my son because he didn't deserve this and before it happens to anybody else, what we're going through right now," Garcia's mother, Rose, said Tuesday.

Police said Garcia was shot twice and died at a nearby hospital. The employee was grazed by a bullet, police said.

The day after the shooting, police released surveillance video showing the people believed to be involved in the case and the light blue Chrysler 200 they drove.
