Three brothers from White Settlement, Texas, have been arrested and are expected to face charges of capital murder for fatally shooting an 18-year-old from Fort Worth, Texas.
23-year-old Sean Garrison, 18-year-old Tyee Garrison and their 17-year-old brother are currently awaiting arraignment on the charges and are in police custody, reported WFAA.
The report notes Xavier Olesko, 18, was fatally shot in the chest around 8:40 p.m. on September 18 outside a home in the 8100 block of Tumbleweed Trail.
Detectives believe Sean and Olesko knew each other and had planned to meet. However, the brothers had planned on robbing Olesko during the meeting, where things apparently went bad and Olesko was shot and killed.
The Star-Telegram reported Olesko was a popular Western High School senior whose death left friends and loved ones heartbroken.
Witnesses told the police that the teen went to the front of the residence to meet with someone when they heard a gunshot. When Olesko’s friends ran out front, they found the 18-year-old lying on the ground not moving. One of the witnesses called 911.
Witnesses told police that they did not see anyone leave the area on foot or in a vehicle, but eventually the suspects were narrowed down to the Garrison brothers. Police originally responded to the call as a possible suicide.
Each brother is currently being held on $200,000 bond.
The Star-Telegram reported 2 of the brothers have previous violent crimes.
In July, Sean Garrison was indicted on a charge of injury to a child in Fort Worth, and he was accused of injuring a girl younger than 15 in March, the report notes. The indictment indicates that Garrison harmed the child by pushing her against a hard object or surface, hitting her and/or biting her.
Garrison was released from jail on $5,000 bond, but that case is still pending.
His little brother Tyee Garrison has been convicted twice of assault causing bodily injury in 2016, both charges being a Class A misdemeanor.
