In the early morning hours of Dec. 20, 2014, Conde was among a large group at a house in Bradenton that was known to illegally sell beer after bars in the area closed, WWSB reported.

While at the residence, members of SUR13 got into a dispute with a rival gang and an unknown assailant shot and killed Conde.

"Due to the nature of the murder, witnesses remained tight lipped as to what occurred, and never did provide information about why Conde was shot,” the sheriff’s office said, according to WTSP.

Garcia is currently serving time in prison in connection to unrelated firearm convictions.
