The 38-year-old was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to WPRI.

Investigators believe the incident was planned since the two suspects knew Garcia, WPRI reported.

Rivera and Castro have also drawn the interest of authorities in North Carolina who are investigating a murder at a national park, according to WPRI.

Josue Calderon, 33, was found dead along the Blue Ridge Parkway last month, and the North Carolina State Medical Examiner’s Office ruled his death a homicide, WPRI reported. The duo has yet to be charged in connection to that killing.
