Police were initially called to the Harrison Pointe Apartments near 46th and Post Road in Lawrence at around 7:00 am. It’s believed a man tried to rob someone at that apartment complex. When he failed, police think he then went to the Jamestown Apartments. That’s when he encountered the victim, 26-year-old Fernando Garza. Police say the suspect shot Garza in the head as he was coming outside on his way to work.
Garza died of his injuries on Thursday, police say.
