Lisa Garcia had everything. Garcia had three beautiful children and a loving boyfriend in Andrew Lineberry. All of them were in a Buick last night that pulled up to an intersection near 10th and Bancroft when a white truck pulled-up. Someone inside the truck started shooting.

“I didn't even see a gun. I just heard boom and I'm screaming. I didn't even know Andy got hit until he jumped out the car and said “Lisa I just got shot”. I'm like no you didn't and he just fell to the ground.”

Andy Lineberry was 25-years-old. He died on the way to the hospital.

Lisa Garcia believes someone wanted Andy Lineberry dead. Three years ago Lineberry testified in a trial when Salvador Pena was murdered. Lineberry testified that a man named Cody Thaden was the shooter. Thaden was subsequently convicted and is now serving prison time.

"Andy testified because Cody couldn't man-up and testify for what he did,” said Garcia.

Garcia now believes revenge has been three years in the making. Garcia says it will take her children much longer to understand what happened to their father.

“He was my best friend in the world. The best dad in the world and now my daughter's don't have a dad anymore.”
